  • Pro tip:  The dip will become smooth faster if the grated cheese and cream cheese are left out a room temperature to soften.
  • Store pub cheese in an air tight container until ready to use, and serve with your favorite pretzels, crackers, breadsticks and veggies.
  • Dip is best served at room temperature. If it's cold, leave at room temp to soften or microwave for 10 seconds or so.
  • Lighten this dip by substituting all or part of the cream cheese with Greek yogurt.
  • Use gluten free beer to make this dip gluten free!
