This recipe I got from a friend at college. I had never heard of beer dip before and it is just as unhealthy for you as it sounds. But it is delicious!
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese
1oz package dry ranch dressing
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup beer (I have found that light beers work best)
Combine cream cheese and ranch. Add cheese, then beer. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
