This thick and creamy soup warms the soul when served with whole wheat bread and a good salad on a cold winter day. I developed this to closely duplicate the soup at a local restaurant that closed several years ago. It took a long time. I hope you enjoy!

I used a package of frozen diced potatoes with peppers/onions and that cut down on the chopping. Excellent soup best I've found on this site for beer cheese. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as stated and it began sticking to the pan. I salvaged the soup to another pan and added 3 T. of butter to aid in the sticking. (I was stirring frequently) It did not taste like the smooth creamy Beer Cheese Soup I have had before. Sorry but I did not find this appealing nor did my family. Read More

Very good but used Newcastle Brown Ale and should have gone with a darker and sweeter beer. Read More

Very Good! I used an aged Parmesan Cheese..made it a bit salty. Would recommend using a less aged cheese or cutting back a bit. Otherwise great! Read More

Made this recipe exactly but omitted the potatoes and added mushrooms and smoked sausage. I thought it was a little too salty for my taste. Next time I will use the potatoes and use less parmesan cheese. Otherwise a good recipe. Read More

I cooked the chopped vegetables in the broth and blended them with a stick blender once they were soft. I then added the beer (Claymore Scotch Ale from Great Divide Brewery) and worcestershire followed by the cheese. Best bowl of beer cheese soup I have ever eaten! Read More
