I know we’re not the only ones who eagerly await the return of football season each year! C has been talking about football for months, Hubster has been plotting his fantasy football picks and I’ve been looking longingly at my Green Bay Packers jersey. Well, wait no more – football season and tailgating have returned! I like to go to Pick ‘n Save, a Wisconsin grocery, to stock up on ingredients for our favorite tailgating recipe, Beer Cheese Dip. It’s a fan favorite and it’s no wonder why. I mean, beer? Cheese? Sounds like Wisconsin perfection.
#MyPicknSave has an awesome selection of local craft beers. Selecting one of these will determine the depth of flavor in your Beer Cheese Dip, so choose wisely! Enjoy a dark, heavy flavor? Try a local stout. Prefer a little bitterness in your beer? Grab a local ale. My beer of choice is New Glarus Spotted Cow. The other ingredients are easy to find and the Pick ‘n Save Stores brand, Roundy’s, provides a great value.
I only use 1/2 cup of beer for this recipe. There’s another benefit to this dip…finishing off the rest of that open beer! You’ll only need to wait one hour while the Beer Cheese Dip chills in the refrigerator, so this recipe can easily be made the night before or the morning of Game Day. Grab some pretzels and celery sticks and load up the car for the game! Is there anything better than a Packers tailgate? We don’t think so.
C is starting to get the hang of throwing the football. Hubster is impressed with C’s “guns” and loves it when C asks him to play catch.
Baby Jo just loves to run around and explore. It’s always an adventure with these two!
Whether you’re chasing children, playing football or sitting in your lawn chair, tailgating is a time to make memories with friends and family. Football and tailgating traditions are some of the best moments to share!
