An easy, cheesy homemade beer soup. Great fall comfort food! The blending part might seem annoying, but it makes the soup velvety smooth. Serve with bread, sour cream, shredded Cheddar, and/or bacon bits.

Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Stir milk into the mixture, place over medium heat, and simmer until warm, about 5 minutes; add soy sauce and black pepper. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese into the soup in small batches while stirring, allowing each addition to melt into the soup before adding more.

  • Slowly stream beer into the soup while gently stirring. Garnish with paprika to serve.

Exactly what I was looking for! I've been craving a beer cheese soup like I get at a nearby restaurant and this was simple and perfect. The only thing I changed was using Worcestire (sp?) sauce instead of soy sauce since I was out. I used 2% milk and it worked great. Read More

This is delicious! I made it exactly as the recipe instructed except that I used vegetable broth instead if chicken (since I'm a vegetarian). Very tasty! My only "complaint" which is not really a complaint is that I would like it a bit thicker. When I make this again (and believe me I will!) I will either use one more potato or use whole milk or half-and-half to make it a bit thicker. Excellent recipe; I am going back for a second helping now! slurp Read More

I copied this from my husband's cousin Sarah and I am incredibly impressed! My husband likes some meat in his meal so I added some diced ham after the beer....delicious!!! Served it with garlic toast. Read More

I have made this twice now. We LOVE it! My terribly picky 15 year old will readily eat it. The directions are easy to follow and accurate. A good friend whom I view as an accomplished cook asked me for this recipe. Read More

It definitely wasn't bad easy to make... but it tasted more like potato soup with a bit of cheese and beer thrown in. Read More

My husband always gets this soup when he goes to a certain restaurant. He said this tasted pretty much the same. He loved it. Since a few people said they didn't like the strong soy sauce flavor. I did half the amount of soy and the other half with Worcestershire sauce. Read More

No one in the family liked this too much. It had an odd off taste. Maybe it was the soy sauce. Don't think I will be making this again. Read More
