Ingredients

How to make it

  • Mince carrots, onions, celery and garlic using a food processor if available
  • Heat LARGE pot on medium with butter, minced vegetables and garlic and sautee
  • Add chicken broth, beer and corn starch (premix corn starch with liquid for best results)
  • Heat to boiling, then reduce to low and simmer for 45 minutes
  • Heat cream in a separate saucepan on medium
  • On medium-low gradually add cheese and stir constantly. Make sure heat is not too high, because it will break down cheese.
  • Once all the cheese has been added to cream, and broth mixture is done simmering and has thickened, add cheese mixture gradually
  • Lastly add dry mustard, Worcestershire, hot sauce, salt, pepper and other seasonings of your choice...and stir!
  • Now enjoy the best cheesy experience of your life! Add bread or croutons for extra YUMMINESS!

    I made this last night because it looked like a close rendition to the beer cheese soup found at the Beer Stein in Eugene, Oregon. It was awesome. I will add less liquid next time, because I wanted it thicker. Next time I also will try omitting the step of melting the cheese in the cream, and just put it all directly into the soup on low, because I don't want to wash two pots. But that might be a mistake. This recipe was so so so so so good.

    WOW!!! This is probably the best soup I have ever had! I sometimes find worchestershire to be a bit overpowering so I only added 1 T, but added extra hot sauce. My husband doesn't like celery so I used celery salt instead so it would still have the flavor, but he wouldn't notice it being in there. Also since I used the celery salt I didn't any table salt, but it may not have needed add'l salt anyway. Used an amber ale (Fat Tire) because it was on hand and it's my favorite, it still had enough bite for me. Served with a crusty sourdough baguette for dipping. Makes my mouth water even now just to think about it!! Also she wasnt kidding you will need a LARGE pot. I started with my regular dutch oven and had to dump it all into a larger pot before I could add the cheese, cream, etc... This is a must try, you wont be sorry!

    It was one of THE best beer cheese soups I've EVER had! The consistency was perfect, the flavors and textures were amazing! I don't have a food processor, so I grated the carrots and diced the celery really small. My fiance was completely in love with the soup, as was I. We used Coors Light beer, which for me was perfect because I don't like beer, so if it was a heavier beer it would have been too much. Perfect recipe!

    It was kind of a pain to make totally from scratch (I've seen some recipes that use cream of celery soup instead of broth and corn starch, etc)... but I grew up on the saying "Don't fix it if it ain't broke!" So I'm sticking with what is good. Plus if it was easier to make I'd want to have it every week and that's probably a bit too much cheese for ANYbody's system. I also only had Habanero Tobasco sauce, so it has a nice zing that leaves a slight burn in the back of your throat. Was good!

    This stuff is killer...my friend was having a soup party and I made this and i can honestly say its the best I've had. I used a dark beer because that is what I prefer to drink... Also It doesn't need any salt so taste first before you season! Cheers for a fantastic easy recipe!

    I've made beer cheese soup several times. It seemed there was something missing. I don't think there is anything missing in your recipe. L.

    Looks good! Here in Chattanooga, TN we have a restaurant called "Hair of the Dog". Yeah, I know how it sounds. But, they have great food and one of their specialties is...you guessed it, "Beer Cheese" soup. It took first place at the Taste of Chattanooga, an annual event where Chattanooga restaurants compete. Of course, they won't give you their recipe, so you can imagine how eager I am to try this one. Thank you.

    Your recipe looks better than the one we use to use at a local brewery's kitchen here in Sacramento...I'll have to try your recipe soon.

    I made a different beer and cheese soup recipe- it was pretty good, but very salty. Does this recipe turn out really salty too? I will have reduce some of the salty components if so. Your recipe looks pretty good :)
