Love beer? Love a good dip? Why not combine the two? Whether being served with crisps, pretzels, veggies or bread, it's a delicious dip, perfect for sharing at a gathering.


  • 3-4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 large onions
  • 1 cup Budweiser beer
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 ⅔ tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder


  1. First things first, melt your butter in a large pan over a medium heat. It’s best if the amount of butter covers the bottom of the pan, so judge whether you need 3 or 4 tablespoons based on its size.
  2. Dice the four onions and add them to the melted butter, then sprinkle the sugar on top. Stir this mixture constantly for up to fifteen minutes, until golden brown.
  3. Increase the heat to high and stir in the Budweiser. Now, bring the beer to a boil… and once it begins boiling, reduce the heat back down to a medium temperature.
  4. For around thirty minutes, simmer the mix and stir occasionally… do this until the liquid has evaporated and the onions are a golden brown.
  5. Remove the onions from the pan and add to a bowl, giving them time to cool down completely.
  6. Time for the next part! In another large bowl, add the cream cheese, sour cream and spices (salt, pepper and garlic powder). Using a hand blender, mix these ingredients together until fully combined and smooth.
  7. Set aside your hand mixer, and by hand, stir in the caramelized onions.
  8. Although this dip can be served immediately, the best results are after it has refrigerated for at least an hour.
  9. Why not chop some more onions to add on top? Enjoy!
