    PiceSeasGirl's Note:

    This is a recipe from the Howe Sound Inn and Brewing Company in Squamish, BC Canada. It was published in a newspaper years ago, and I held on to it. Good thing, as no longer live there but I can still enjoy the tastes from where I grew up. This soup goes great with the Butter-Beer Bread (Butter-Beer Bread)

      I can not BELIEVE I found this recipe! I also lived in Squamish, B.C. and have since moved. I was sitting here talking to my husband about how much I missed this crazy good soup from this brewery. Thought I`d look for a recipe to try and duplicate it. Well you can imagine my pleasure and surprise to find THE recipe! THANK-YOU for saving and posting this recipe!

      This soup is great! The second time I made it I used 2 bottles of beer and a couple of shots of Worcestershire Sauce. I would do that again. This is a great, hearty soup for anyone who loves ale.
