Well I like beer and I like cheese, so this one is gonna get five stars before I even try it! If a soup made with beer and cheese tastes half as good as it sounds, you're a genious! I'll probably try it over the weekend, and I'll be sure to come back and let you know what I think.

I've always enjoyed your soup recipes Barkley. I've tried your Beef and Beer soup, and the fresh corn and crab chowder recipes. Both of them are out of this world! As a beer drinker who loves cheese I can't wait to get started on the cheesy beer soup. Thanks for the recipe, and I look forward to more of your awesome soup recipes.
