    For those who attended Ohio University and know what "real" beer cheese soup from the Pub is like... I tell you this recipe is pretty close to the famous Wednesday special. It was quick and easy to make. Somebody tell Mike, the secret recipe is out.  -  22 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I highly recommend forgoing the velveeta yuk I used 1 can of cream of chicken & one can of cream of broccoli. Instead of fake cheese, I used 8oz of cabot sharp cheddar & 8oz cabot montery jack. I used dogfish head 90 minute IPA so there was a little bite, but it was mellowed out by the montery jack, I also used fresh cauliflower - delicious!!!  -  21 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was great! I used low fat cream of chicken soup, low fat processed cheese, and light beer. My boyfriend never had a clue. It was still rich and creamy, but with less fat. I also left out the boullions to cut down on the salt and added garlic and basil to spice it up. Wonderful!  -  18 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
