this was outstanding! great onion flavor. i sliced 4 onions, sweated them in oil and butter for half an hour and needed 5 cups of stock to cover.i actually simmered this for half an hour, then followed the recipe. everyone enjoyed this

Maybe I did something wrong. Neither my Dh nor I cared for the taste of this soup. We used a bottle of good Bass Ale, but it just didn't blend well with the onions and the chicken stock and gave a rather bitter flavor to the soup. Sorry CL...I really wanted to like this soup and think that perhaps it's just not in tune with our taste buds.

I made this soup for an Oktoberfest dinner last year and it was a hit! I regularly get requests for it.

Marg, DH and DS loved this soup, the best part is it takes very little time to cook, which was a plus to prepare for a summer's day. I used my caramalized onions (Kittencal's Caramelized Onions) which I had already prepared and frozen in my freezer, and that made it even more quicker, and used a light beer. I did not have any gruyere cheese, so I used mozzarella instead. We really enjoyed this delicious soup! Thanks for sharing...Kitten:)

This is a great recipe. I've made it several times for company, and it's been a hit each time. I would stay away from a really bitter beer.. I use Cream Ale and it seems to add the right flavor.
