1/4 cup beer (somebody gets to drink the rest!-she said it not me)-I used more like 1/2 cup
1 packet (1 ounce) dry ranch dip mix
1 1/2 cups finely shredded cheddar cheese
With a mixer beat together cream cheese, dip mix, and beer until smooth. Stir in cheese and chill for at least 2 hours. Serve with seasoned pretzels or beer bread. This can be served as a snack for your family or brought up to the North woods in a cooler.
