Jolly Pumpkin’s Amber Ale Cheese Dip

By Joseph Beyer | Oct. 8, 2022

As you watch those first autumn leaves fall to the ground, embrace the warm, familiar flavors of Jolly Pumpkin’s Amber Ale Cheese Dip, best paired with one of the sour beers the brewery is famous for. Friendly bartender Ron will give you the option to add spicy chorizo and pico de gallo to the top of your bowl of melted cheddar infused with siren ale and cayenne peppers, and trust us, you’ll want to take it. There won’t be any dip left after you dive in with a selection of white corn tortilla chips and toasted baguette (the latter of which reign supreme and should be re-loaded between each bite). The appetizer or small plate—made perfectly suitable for two at $12—is just what you need right now to get excited about fall foods that warm the soul. Find Jolly Pumpkin Restaurant & Brewery on Old Mission Peninsula at 13512 Peninsula Drive. Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays, then open all other days from 12pm to 8pm.
