When we make it for friends and family, no one ever guesses how easy it is to make. All I do is cook the bacon ahead of time and then just mix up all the ingredients and leave them in the slow cooker for a few hours.
Serve it in a bowl (or straight from the slow cooker), with pretty much any dipper that you like from bread, crackers, chips, and pretzels. If you've been looking for new crockpot dip recipes, this beer cheese dip recipe a great one to try.
Ingredients for Beer Cheese Dip

How to Make Cheddar Bacon Beer Dip
Coat your crock pot with cooking spray, and then add the cream cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, beer, 3/4 of the crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese. Stir well to combine, and then cook the dip on low for three to four hours. Stir the mixture occasionally while it cooks.
Stir in heavy whipping cream in the last 30 45 minutes. Once the dip is done, stir it well and then garnish it with the rest of the bacon and the sliced green onions.
What to Serve with Beer Cheese Dip
Veggies: Carrot sticks, celery, sliced bell peppers, broccoli, and cauliflower florets work great.
Bread: Try sliced baguette, warm sliced pita bread, soft pretzel bites, or plain toasted bread.
Crackers: Any crackers you like will pair well with it!
Chips: Try crunchy pita chips, tortilla chips, or corn chips.
Beer: I like to use a dark-style beer for this recipe, but any beer you like will work. A dark beer will add a more complex taste compared to light-style beers. So, choose your favorite one.
Serving: Once the bacon beer cheese dip is done, you can keep it warm in the slow cooker (if yours has a warm setting). Sometimes we serve it right from the crockpot to make clean-up easier.
Leftovers: Leftover dip will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days. It may thicken, so you might need to thin it with a little more cream when you warm it up. Crockpot cheesy bacon beer dip is so easy to make and tastes great! No party is complete without a warm cheese dip, and this one is a great recipe to try. I hope you enjoy it!
