  • 12 oz thawed, chopped frozen artichoke hearts (or jarred)
  • 2 tbs butter
  • ½ cup minced onion
  • 2 tbs garlic, minced

  1. Boil spinach and artichokes in 2½ cups water until tender. Transfer to a fine mesh strainer to drain, using the back of a spoon to press out any remaining liquid. Set aside.

  3. Add garlic and cook an additional minute until fragrant. Stir in the beer followed by the cream cheese, sour cream, and grated cheeses. Cook, stirring regularly, until the cheese is fully melted and incorporated.
  4. Add lemon juice, worcestershire sauce, red pepper flakes, and salt to taste. Stir in the spinach and artichokes, transfer to a bowl, and serve warm alongside a cold, hoppy beer.
