I spent a short time as a cook at Schuler's (Grand Haven). This is how we served it... in a small soup crock, put a large freshly baked crouton (w/ sprinkles of parm.), add about an ounce of ale, fill it with soup, drape a slice of swiss over the top, sprinkle it with more parm., in the oven a few min. to melt the swiss... presto, a truly great soup. Rich and ever so good.
