This is one tasty soup! Full of flavour with the right amount of 'kick' and very filling. Perfect for a cold evenings dinner, thanks for posting.

This soup was very yummy! I froze the leftover soup I had and it freezes very well. This will be a nice warm up for a cold football Sunday, thank you.

This was pretty good. I'm a native Wisconsinite now living in San Francisco, & still haven't found my ultimate brat, beer & cheese soup, but this was close. I did not peel the potatoes in this, not needed...I used 18 oz. Newcastle, 3 c sharp cheddar cheese & 4 bratwurst (which were also cooked in 18 oz of Newcastle). It was a hit with everyone here! I'm going to try this again, I wasn't very happy with my bratwurst I got (it's harder to find out here) & then this may be my ultimate recipe. :)

i had extra beer and wanted to use it up. this was excellent. i didn't use meat in this but i did add extra worcestershire sauce and hot sauce, for our taste. Very good and comforting on a cold damp day. leftovers tasted even better the next day too.

What a soup! And it has the 3 food groups (if you're from Wisconsin like me!) in it! I was given leftover brats from a neighbors party and I knew this was it! The flavor is fantastic! Nothing over powers and it blends quite well! This is so good, DH asked me to make extra brats next time we BBQ just so I can make this again! High praise indeed!

Sorry we did not like this at all. It tasted bitter. We threw most of this out.

I made adaptations to prepare this in the crockpot, but overall was pleased with the result. The beer flavor provided a great boost of flavor & we liked the spiciness of the soup. From the reactions among my diners it would be a hit at a tailgate or deer camp. My batch was a little thin so I thickened with a cornstarch slurry, but I had skipped the flour step. thanks for sharing the recipe!

This soup is delicious. My family thoroughly enjoyed it and even went back for seconds! Thankfully, there was enough leftover for lunches, too. I used Killian's Red for the beer and grilled up 5 brats (and wished i had grilled more). I cheated and used diced hash browns for the potatoes--it turned out so yummy! Served (and sopped up the soup) with Asiago bread rolls. Thanks!

This was very good. I used low sodium chicken broth, dark beer, omitted the salt and doubled the bratwurst. I also was lazy and didn't puree the vegetables...we enjoyed it as a chunky soup. Thank you for posting.
