Made this twice it was very good. We felt t needed more cheese. We used a guiness black lager. Served with homemade croutons. We added more cheese for flavor and to thicken.

Amazing soup. So rich and thick! I did not use celery, but added new white potatoes (cooked them first and cut up into smll pieces) I used Coors light beer. I added more worchester sauce and extra dry mustard and a bit of hot pepper juice (I didn't have tabasco). Reviews said that this soup was a bit watery, so I added about 5c broth, rather than 6. Soup turned out lovely and thick and delicious.

I liked this quite well. i did not use celery, so added more carrots and celery. This was a little thin for me and I think I might reduce the amount of stock or add some potato or other veggie next time. I used O'Doul's, a nonalcoholic beer, which added a very nice flavor to the soup.
