  • 4 Tbsp butter

  • 1/4 cup grated onion (about 1/2 medium onion)

  • 3 Tbsp flour

  • 2 tsp ground mustard

  • 1 cup beer, like an IPA, room temp

  • 1 cup whole milk or heavy cream, room temp

  • 1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese

  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1 tsp kosher salt

  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper

  • 1-2 tsp tabasco sauce


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the grated onion and cook until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and ground mustard, whisking until a bubbly, thick roux has formed, about 2 minutes.

  2. Whisking constantly, slowly pour in the beer. Again, working very, very slowly, pour in the cream and whisk until the sauce thickens a bit, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add the grated cheeses and whisk until the beer cheese dip is smooth. Season with salt, pepper and Tabasco, adjusting to taste.
