Totally worth the long wait! It's full of flavor and just the right consistancy. I used the optional beer, but added it right in the beginning (to burn off the alcohol). I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and sharp cheddar. I garnished with croutons, green onion and bacon bits.....goldfish crackers for the kids. ;) Thanx for sharing. I'll make this again!

This was easily the best homemade soup I have ever made. Perfect consistency, great flavour, and velvety in the mouth. It is a little salty, so next time I will omit the added salt altogether. In my opinion, this great soup doesn't need it--you get all the flavour you need by using old or sharp cheddar.

I saw this recipe and wanted it for supper tonight, so I made it on the stovetop. I sauteed the veggies in the butter, then sprinkled the flour over that. Stirred until it was absorbed, then slowly added the broth and the beer. I added a bit more pepper, a pinch of red pepper flakes which I felt added a nice touch, and also a couple of bay leaves. No salt - the broth added enough salt for me. Once the veggies were all tender, I blended it, added the cheeses (not sure of amount) and also some grated Parmesan. Blended it again to make sure it was all nicely incorporated (too impatient to wait!). I may want to play around a bit with seasonings, but this is definitely a delicious soup.
