Excellent Soup! I modified it by adding 8-oz more Chicken Stock and almost twice the required cheese. I also added cornstarch to thicken the soup. Next time I will cut the onions down by half, 3-cups is a bit much. I've already had the soup as a leftover and it's even better since the flavor has seated in.

Great soup! Except for cutting the butter in half, I made this exactly as written. I can see where some might like it thicker, but that is easily remedied by add some corn starch. I too used the Yeungling Black and Tan, and I also minced by veggies by giving them a whirl in the food processor instead of chopping by hand. Although I didn't try it for this go-round of making the soup, I can imagine it would be very tasty with pumpernickel croûtons. Thank you Rhonda O for posting; this is a great soup!

i also felt it seemed like it would have been better thicker... perhaps less stock. I used a Hefeweizen style beers... might have been too light for a soup. I also added mich more pepper and added some thyme too as i found the soup a bit mild tasting.
