I made this last night and I really like it!
I used Fosters beer( Any premium beer would work, The Ale one person mentioned might throw off the soup's flavor due to Ale's bitterness)
I cooked the veggies and flour in a big skillet, then moved everything to a crock pot.
It was wonderful!

This is disgusting. And we wonder why people are so over weight and unhealthy.

You can lower the calories by using less butter and an equal quantity of flour (2 tbsp butter with 2 tbps flour, for example). Also can sub out the whipping cream with something like half and half or evaporated milk. Going fat free will make it a little less rich tasting, but still will be good.
Just like they say for wine, only use a beer you would drink. What kind doesn't matter, it's to your own taste.

AngelaS72, you can lower the calories by using light beer and low/no fat cheese, but don't expect it to taste the same. A once in a while splurge won't kill anyone. I don't think this is meant as an everyday dish.

We absolutely love beer cheese soup! This was fun to make, but we had to add a bunch of stuff to it because it tasted bland to us. We added more cayenne pepper, seasoned salt, tabasco, and garlic. We also used a little more cheese and flour to thicken it. We'll keep playing with it though!

This soup tasted amazing until I added the beer. I researched what kind of beer compliments Sharp
Cheeder cheese so I used Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I thought it had a "funny" taste. Maybe next time I'll omit the beer and use this for potato or broccoli cheese soup because the soup was fabulous without the beer. However, it was a bit thick so if anyone does this you'll want to only add 1/2 c of quick mixing four. Does anyone suggestions on what kind of beer to use? I love beer cheese and still want to learn how to make it? Maybe a stout?

I thought this sounded like a good addition to a simple supper till I saw there was 790 calories per serving. I wont even try it now. Shouldnt there be more of a focus on keeping meals healthy.
