Cheesy Beer Dip

This ooey-gooey dip is sure to become the centerpiece of your game day festivities. The secret is in the Guinness, which adds a rich, earthy flavor that’s only enhanced by the slow simmer of the slow cooker. Serve it in a bowl or straight out of the slow cooker to keep it piping hot even through the commercials!
