You can only get away with this in Wisconsin – we offer no apologies. And I must say this recipe is fantastic (thanks Jen.) I suggest using Leinenkugel’s Honey Weiss for the brew.
2 8-oz. bricks of cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup of beer (hey, you want to have some left over to drink…)
1 package Ranch dressing mix (or Lipton onion soup mix)
1 cup fresh grated parmesan
Put everything except for the parmesan cheese in a blender and pulse until smooth. Pour into a serving dish and top with the grated parmesan. Serve immediately with pretzels.
