Recipe by wildheart

Beer and Cheese soup is great before a fire, or for a tailgate party (SUPERBOWL!!) Definitely a man's meal, slice and add knockwurst and serve with bagels.

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.
