They will beg for it Beer Cheese Soup

One of the greatest things I learned at college. We always serve in a warm crusty bread bowl, but it is good in any kind of bowl! As wonderful as it is the first day, the second day reaches a new level of goodness. Serve as a meal if you want. Enjoy!

This is a nice thick soup. I used my trusty slow cooker. I keep my vegetables on the chunky side, and I bring the milk and cheeses to room temperature before adding. This has a little bit of a kick to it. The Italian spice was too strong for me, so next time I'll only use 1 tsp. Made this for "Belly Warmers"-2009.
