Beer Cheese Soup

This Beer Cheese Soup recipe is easy to make and is super cozy! Caramelized onions gives the broth depth of flavor with plenty of cheese and beer options. This recipe uses subtle flavor enhancers that round out the flavor profile for a restaurant quality soup.

This incredible Beer Cheese Soup is like a bowl of cozy heaven. It starts with savory bacon, which adds a ton of flavor to the soup pot. The drippings are reserved and are used to caramelize the onions, which adds a slightly sweet offset to the beer. It has the best blend of seasonings and subtle flavor enhancers that takes this soup to restaurant status, and the combination of cheese options are endless.

As for the beer, stick to a variety of beer that you enjoy drinking on its own. Pale Ale is a great choice as well.


  • 4-6 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 3 Tablespoons salted butter
