I made you some cheesy beer, y’all!  Or maybe I made you some beer-y cheese?

Either way, I thought we’d take a little break from apples and talk about some Smoked Gouda Beer Cheese.  After all, it’s not just apple season.  It’s football season too and the real Oktoberfest in Munich kicks off this weekend.  All these occasions demand a celebration with some beer cheese.

This stuff is so good, y’all!  You can serve it as a warm dip for vegetables or bread the next time you have your peeps over to watch the game.  It also makes a totally awesome sauce.  Now that I think about it, this would make an amazing mac ‘n beer cheese! With bacon!  OMG!  I need to get on that STAT!

Sorry – I got a bit distracted by how dreamy this smoked gouda beer cheese is.  I’m keeping things short today and peacing out.  But before I go – I joke you not.  You need this in your life!

  1. I made this smoked gouda beer cheese twice.  I used Lonerider Brewing Company Sweet Josie Brown and Brooklyn Brewing Summer Ale and both were amazing!
  2. I don’t recommend using an IPA or other hoppy beer for this recipe
  3. If you’re not a fan of smoked gouda cheese, feel free to substitute one that you like, but you’ll want to balance the type of beer you use

  1. You have got to do a mac & cheese with this!!! Excellent idea! Beer plus cheese = yummy in ma tummy! Just in time for the weekend too 🙂 P.S. I just saw pumpkin beer around here so you know that Fall has unofficially officially started, lol 😀 Pinning! Have a great weekend! Xo

  2. You had me at smoked gouda and beer! What a perfect combination. And then I saw your comment about using this for mac and cheese. Wow. Mind blown. Have a great weekend down South, my friend!

  3. Holy cheesy dip! This looks dang good girl! I LOVE cheese dip, especially smoked gouda, and could literally eat this for dinner. No shame here 😉 I’m going to the store to get a big hunk of gouda to make this dip for the Patriots Sunday game! Wooohooooo GO PATS!!!! heeheehee 🙂

  4. Ooo… I LOVE beer cheese! But I’ve never made it myself! That’s gotta change asap! My husband was born in Germany, so we always have some traditional German food around, to include giant soft pretzels. This year those pretzels will have a warm, cheesy counterpart 🙂 Thanks for this awesome recipe!

  5. I came here after seeing Gouda + Beer. I seriously thought it was a cheese flavored beer, or a beer flavored cheese… The dip still looks good though 🙂
