I don’t know if two things could go better together but all hail the Warm Spicy Cheese & Beer Dip.   I prefer to use dark stout beers as these have the most flavours. (And actually have the least amount of calories!) This is a delicious dip to accompany any party.  It can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge the day before serving.  It can be made in no time and is great for dipping with vegetables or pretzels. Perfect for a Superbowl game or any great party.
