I found this recipe on WisconsinCheeseTalk.com and posted it on my Pinterest board for Snacks. I thought it would be a good variation from my ranch beer dip that I typically make.
I knew this would be a good recipe to try for New Year's Eve and get my friends' thoughts on it. It was warmly welcomed with the multi-grain mini Club crackers that I brought.
Of course I had to use Wisconsin cheese, so I headed over to the Piggly Wiggly in Muskego to see the different choices. I ended up getting Stone Ridge Sharp Cheddar Cheese from Wautoma, WI. I chose this because I had never heard of it and figured putting it in a dip was a great way to start.
And I used more beer (probably a 1/2 - 3/4 cup) than it called for to make the dip creamier instead of hard (like my ranch beer cheese dip does). And I didn't have scallions, so I used a bit of a yellow onion left over from another recipe.
I used my mom's kitchen mixer to blend it all together evenly and then put it in the a nice bowl and let it chill for an hour before the party.
