Since you are talking dips somewhere, I have a great dip that my friend makes and we all stole it and act like it's our own. Its glorious.
2 bricks softened cream cheese
1 packet hidden valley ranch dry dip mix
6 oz cheddar cheese
6 oz your favorite beer (I strictly use ML)
Combine all ingredients, refrigerate preferably overnight but until mix hardens. Serve with mini pretzels.
It is crack. Trust me.
