How to Make Beer Cheese Soup

This soup is very easy to make. Start with melting some butter in a Dutch oven. Whisk in some flour. Gradually whisk in a bottle of beer until smooth. Whisk in stock, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat. Stir in cheese until melted. While the soup is simmering, cook some smoked sausage. Serve the soup in bowls and garnish with the cooked sausage.

  • For the smoked sausage in this recipe, I used Conecuh smoked sausage. You can use any brand that you prefer or substitute smoked turkey sausage.
  • Don’t like smoked sausage? Feel free to swap it for bacon or leave it out altogether for a vegetarian dish.
  • You can use any beer that you enjoy. I used Michelob Ultra. I suggest using a light beer so it doesn’t overpower the soup.
  • If you don’t want any alcohol in the soup, you can substitute a non-alcoholic beer.
  • I used cheddar cheese. Feel free to use any cheese that you prefer.
  • Can Beer Cheese Soup be frozen? Yes! Let the soup cool completely and transfer to plastic containers or freezer bags and freeze. To reheat, thaw and reheat on the stove or in the microwave.

What Goes with Beer Cheese Soup

As I said, we LOVE this soup! We usually serve the soup in a bowl with extra cheese and smoked sausage and a pretzel roll. It is also great served in a bread bowl. Rip the bread and dunk it into the soup as you eat it. YUM!
