Fifty/Fifty Does Beer Cheese

March 15, 2017 1 Comment

Over the weekend we actually had a sunny day here in the Portland---something that has been a rarity so far this spring! So, of course, we wanted to spend as much time as possible outdoors. We stopped by 10 Barrel Brewing to fill up our Fifty/Fifty Beer Growler and invited friends over to share a cold beer on the back deck. We knew we'd all want a little something to snack on and keeping with the beer theme, found a delicious beer cheese dip to try out!

Recipe from Fox and Briar




  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup grated white cheddar
  • ¾ cup grated mozzarella, divided
  • ¼ cup beer (I used a lager)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • A few dashes hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (optional, for garnish)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a medium bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Add the grated cheddar cheese and ½ cup of the grated mozzarella, stir to combine.
  3. Add the garlic powder, beer and hot sauce, stir until completely mixed.
  4. Pour into a baking dish and sprinkle the remaining ¼ cup of mozzarella on top.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes or until melted and top is golden.
  6. Top it off with fresh cut parsley, serve warm, and enjoy!

We picked up our pretzel buns from Safeway and topped them off with melted butter and salt since we were in a hurry, you know, friends on their way over and all! If you want the recipe to make the pretzels from scratch, we encourage you to visit Fox and Briar.
