“My attempt to recreate the Loon Golden Ale Dip at Woodstock Inn Station & Brewery, Woodstock, NH . . . if you want to save time, you can buy roasted peppers and garlic instead of roasting them yourself, this cuts the total time down to about 45 minutes (15 prep, 30 cooking) from 90 minutes (15 prep, 75 cooking). This is a hearty dip, so make sure your dippers can stand up to it!”
1hr 30mins
1 10 inch pie plate

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  3. Cut the garlic head in half (so that you have two rain drop shaped halves) and remove any loose, papery skin.
  4. Place the garlic on the baking sheet, cut side down.
  5. Split peppers in half and remove seeds and stems.
  6. Place the peppers on the baking sheet, skin side up
  7. Roast garlic and peppers for 40-45 minutes.
  8. Reduce oven temp to 350.
  9. Immediately seal peppers in a baggie or other container for about 15 minutes to allow peppers to steam.
  10. Peel the charred skin from the peppers (the skin should come away easily).
  11. In a sauce pan over low heat, mix cream cheese, Gorgonzola, heavy cream, and sour cream until well-blended.
  12. Coarsely chop peppers and add to cheese mixture along with spinach and roasted garlic (gently squeeze the roasted halves to get the garlic out).
  13. Place mixture into a 10" pie plate and top with shredded mozzarella.
  14. Bake about 20 minutes until bubbly and golden brown on top.
  15. Serve with crusty bread, crackers, flat bread or other sturdy dippers.
