You are probably having some beer on game day, so go ahead and make a beer cheese dip. This dip is so simple and it's a crowd pleaser! Throw it in your slower cooker and you are good to go. Or 15 minutes in a saucepan over medium high heat if you want it right away. 3 hours on high in a slow cooker or 6 hours on low. Serve it with some pretzel sticks, tortilla chips and/or crackers. So easy, yet so delicious.
