Who is excited for the Big Game coming up? Well if you’re excited for that, you’re really going to be excited for the recipes that I have in store this week! For the next five days I’ll be brining you some tasty recipes to serve up for the football game coming up! And I must mention that they all feature beer, cheese and brats. Get excited!

Today’s post is the base for a couple of other recipes coming this week. I am a huge fan of beer cheese dip. I love it served up with pretzels or bread. I took it a step further by adding in beer brats. So I guess technically it’s Beer Brat Beer Cheese Dip. That’s a lot of tasty going on!

Beer Brat Cheese Dip

This recipe offers a creamy dip perfectly served with warm, soft pretzels. I used Guinness in this recipe but you can use any dark beer that you have or enjoy.

So on that note, let’s get this party week started!
