With a little bit of madness and a serious amount of chili-inspired spices, the beer is now ready for fans' taste buds.

"Football season is just as much about the delicious food and drinks as it is about the game and the people you enjoy watching it with," said Jason Hron, Hormel chili brand manager. "This year we were inspired to bring fans together and create something everyone can agree on – an irresistible sip that unites the best flavors of our famous Hormel Chili Cheese Dip."

How can beer taste like chili cheese dip? The crushable American lager features Minnesota Pilsner barley malt and flaked corn. With this delicious corn chip-flavored base, Modist Brewing Co. added a mix of savory spices and hints of cheddar cheese powder to bring the flavors of Hormel Chili Cheese Dip to life.
