    This soup is a feast, trully delicious and you can go on that for the rest of day. It is also very simple to make and it took me only approx. 20 minutes to make it ready. The consistence is extremely smooth and creamy, I used spreadable cheese from Aldi instead of cheese sauce, which made it thicker than I expected ( you can always add a little bit more beer or milk if too thick), served with garlic toasts-yummy!!!  -  28 Mar 2016


    I used to work at Baby Doe's and have searched for years to find a soup like theirs. This is wonderful and brings back some great memories. I like it best with a lighter beer. My husband bought a dark ale one time and it was a bit overpowering, but still a great soup. Thanks for sharing!  -  25 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Baby Doe's Matchless Mine in Dallas has long been a family tradition and the "Beer Cheese Soup" has been a lifelong favorite of mine (I would always ask for an extra cup). This recipie is very authentic. I, too have reduced the amount of W'sauce as the first batch was a little "fishy". Wife loved it, kids liked it as well. I have found a new "Soup and Sandwich Lunch" staple at the Hawke house. Just a note: they originally used Coors beer (in the 70's anyway) not dark beer. I made it with both and the results, while completely different, are both delicious! Thanks for bringing back wonderful childhood memories!!!  -  26 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
