Just eight days until hundreds will gather in downtown Tuscaloosa's Government Plaza for the 6th Annual Bacon Brew & Que presented by New Belgium and Fat Tire, and we're counting the days down with previews of the incredible dishes that the city's finest restaurants will have to available to sample.

Today, we're looking at the Loaded Ranch Dip from Dotson's Burger Spot, and folks -- it's really good.

This dip is a balanced mix of cream cheese, chopped bacon, cheddar cheese and a healthy portion or ranch dressing served with some incredible house potato chips.

Just look at that picture -- the bacon really comes out in this dip which would be right at home at any tailgate party and as a side to any of Dotson's delicious burgers.
