The first time I had a Beer Cheese Soup was in 80’s, at the now demolished Baby Doe Matchless Mine in Denver. I tried various recipes at home, but never could figure out how theirs was so smooth…a former employee clued me in: Cheez Whiz. Yeah, you heard it right. This is NOT that soup! This is a grown up soup with serious cheese flavor.
Here’s the funny thing – I don’t really like most beer – it takes a thick, dark, rich beer to even begin to pique my interest, and then I love to top it with a shake of salt just as an Irishwoman taught me when I was in my twenties. Try it – its heaven!
