Soup made with dark ale

  • 11

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. 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.

              personally I think the Brown Ale would be better than the pale ale the recipe author used.

              1. Corned Beef & Cabbage Soup....

                1. Danish beer and bread soup, as featured on Babbet's Feast

                  1. I like a strong beer in my lentil soup.
