This is a secret Rosehill family recipe, and my brothers may disown me for sharing it with you! Really it is that good. I'm sure you've come across some interesting beer/soup recipes, but I assure you that once you taste mine, you'll be googling my name for more of my soup recipes.

      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.

      I hate what beer can do to my husband when he gets home drunk. Yet this beer soup recipe gives me a feeling that I will also learn to love beer!

      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.
