Soup made with dark ale

Looking for a great soup that would let Bell's Best Brown Ale shine (one of the star breweries here in Michigan.)

I was thinking it might make a nice addition to French onion...then I thought cheese and ale soup.

Please send your best thoughts/recipes along!

  1. lamb stew (like Guinness Stew)

      1. Hey thanks you guys, but I'm looking for soup, not stew. Any other thoughts?

          potato or sausage soup. stew is just soup with less liquid, lol.

        2. I would agree with your Beer-Cheddar soup
          Here is a couple to get you started but there are lots of good ones out there with all sorts of variations, Bacon, Jalapenos, Chipotle, Cauliflower Etc...

            Thanks, exactly what I wanted! Trying tomorrow.

          2. I made a variation of Bittman's Ale, Cheddar and Cauliflower Soup. It was delicious!

            With you on straight up cheddar 'n ale (the one with shredded carrots). That's ALWAYS a fave.
