What is the Best Beer for Beer Cheese Dip?

This depends on the sharpness of the cheese. If you are using a sharp cheddar, for instance, we recommend using a dark or hoppy beer like an IPA or a Stout. If the cheese is mild, stick with a lighter or blonde beer.

Note: It is recommended to use Hickory Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.
