This is very similar to a recipe I found in a Frugal Gourmet cookbook (this recipe includes garlic and twice as much cheese, both good additions). Tasting as I went, I added only half as much beer as I used a very full bodied beer. I did add some knockwurst, which I think was excellent in the soup.

Very good, I added bacon bits to this recipe instead of knockwurst. umm, it was good. I cut back on the butter too. I like how it called for lots of onion though. Very tasty.
