Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day is obviously a must. Every year I try and do something different with it, mostly because I can only drink one and feel full. This year I’m making a fun and super easy appetizer with it! Serve it hot and watch it disappear- blame it on the leprechauns.


1 tablespoon Irish butter

2 cloves garlic

3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/4 cup Guinness Draught

Pinch salt

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne


4 oz Irish cheddar cheese, shredded

4 oz Gruyere cheese, shredded



In a small pan over medium heat melt the butter

To the butter add in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds

Add in the Dijon, Guiness, salt, pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper. Whisk together to combine

Let it come to a simmer and add in the cheese

Whisk until the cheese has melted completely

Serve hot with pretzels, soda bread, or regular bread! Yum!
