Great taste! I doubled the recipe. I separated the veggies from the liquid in a strainer. Then used half the liquid (in the food processor) to puree the veggies. I used the food processor again to mix the rest of the liquid with the flour and cheese. The added the cheese mix to the veggies then the beer. Husband went back for seconds... Read More

Wow I followed this recipe to a T and we were disappointed. Maybe it's because I used a Bock beer (Shiner) but the cheese almost seemed to curdle when I poured in the beer. The flavor was just not there rather sour. I will be looking for a new recipe if I feel like experimenting I may play with this recipe a bit but I'm definitely not impressed with the base recipe.

I really enjoyed this recipe. Instead of the shredded cheese I use Cheese Whiz - which makes it really creamy. Thanks for sharing! Read More

PERFECT! and simple to make. Budweiser makes it. Would not change a thing. I used extra sharp cheddar which I really thought gave it that "super cheesey" taste I was looking for. Can't wait to make this one again. Read More

A good version of beer and cheese soup. I added garlic to the mix and I also added some pieces of cooked bacon to the soup before serving. Always a hit. Read More

Great recipe! Remember to use a regular(not light)beer if you want a stronger beer flavor. Read More

I'm vegetarian so I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I didn't have dijon mustard so we substituted regular. It was delicious! Read More

Great recipe! I added a bit more dijon mustard and a bit of freshly ground pepper in the final stages and it turned out great. Also I used a can of Coors Light and it tasted fine to me. Thanks for sharing!!! Read More

Pretty good! I'd suggest using 2 cans of broth and a whole beer and then adjusting thickness with the remaining broth if you want more beer flavor and a thicker soup. This recipe can be made gluten free if you have gluten free broth beer and flour. When I made it GF I had to add cornstarch too because the GF flour didn't quite do the job. Read More

Nice light tasting soup! I wish it were a little thicker but I couldn't NOT use a full can of beer - that'd just be.. wrong. Used just 1 Tbsp butter to saute all the veggies and it worked just fine. Also pureeing the entire soup made a wonderfully consistent tasting/textured soup! Read More
