James and I have a thing for soft pretzels, especially soft pretzels with beer cheese. In fact, if a restaurant has soft pretzels with beer cheese as an appetizer we will order it. Sometimes we even order two. Sometimes we don’t bother with dinner and just have soft pretzels and beer cheese.
A couple of years ago, we celebrated a homemade Oktoberfest. It was a lot of fun! We had bratwurst, soft pretzels, and my homemade alcohol free beer cheese. It was one of James’ favorite events. When his birthday rolled around this year he requested no gifts. I decided to surprise him with an Oktoberfest birthday complete with authentic German brats, soft pretzels, and my alcohol free beer cheese. It was a success!
Alcohol Free Beer Cheese
- 12 ounces non-alcoholic beer (I used Beck’s)
- 5 part-skim mozzarella cheese sticks
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 16 ounces of cream cheese
- Over medium heat, heat beer.
- Break cheese sticks into small chunks and add to the pot.
- Cut cream cheese into pieces and stir into beer.
- Stir in cheddar cheese.
- Continue stirring until everything is melted and gooey.
- Remove from heat and serve.
Alcohol free beer cheese can be served warm or cold. We love it warm with piping hot pretzels for dipping! If you are making this for a party you will have plenty. If you are making this for your family, you will have more than enough. It can easily be halved for smaller meals.
One day I’m going to try to make my own pretzels but for now I will buy them. We love SuperPretzels. They are quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious.
We had an awesome time celebrating Oktoberfest and really enjoyed the food.
Have a blessed day!
