Beer & Cheese Fondue

Beer & Cheese Fondue


  • 1 12 oz. bottle India Pale Ale
  • 3/4 pounds Sharp Cheddar, Grated
  • 3/4 pounds Swiss or Gruyere Grated
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 2 scallions, finely sliced


  1. Pour all the beer into a large heavy-bottomed sauce pan and bring it to a boil; reduce the heat and allow to simmer for a few minutes, until slightly reduced about 7 minutes.

  2. In a medium bowl, toss the cheeses together. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the grated cheeses and toss again to coat.

  3. Add the cheese/cornstarch mixture, a handful at a time, to the bubbling beer, stirring after each addition and allowing each handful to melt completely. Stir in the scallions.

  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste; keep warm over low heat.

  5. Dip your favorite Snyder’s of Hanover® pretzels and enjoy (perfect with Snyder’s of Hanover® Pretzel Chips)!
