Beer Cheese Soup Recipe
In our small Midwestern town I feel as if I’m some sort of novelty some days. It’s kind of fun! I mean who else runs a blog about food in the whopping 5,000 people that live here? I assure you it’s only a couple of us. A few of their favorite recipes are Hamburger Stroganoff, Cheesy Bacon Potato Soup and my famous Crockpot Chili!
The other day at my “real job” I was following up with a customer on a trouble they were experiencing with our service. As soon as I said I was Julie she’s like, “Wait, as in Julie’s Eats & Treats????” I said, “Yup, that’s me!”
She quickly went on to rave about my recipes and how she loved them etc. I won’t deny that on the other end of the phone I was smiling from ear to ear. I just LOVE to hear when you guys try something and love it and have tips on how you adapted it for me to try. I really does make this whole blogging thing so much more fun that’s for sure!
Beer Cheese Soup
This week I went to pick up my set of knives at a local hardware store after they sharpened for me. When I dropped them off the guy was admiring them and how fancy they were. I agreed since they are super awesome. They are engraved and quite stunning. When I picked them up he continued to ooooo and ahhhh over them. I let him. And then I giggled a bit inside. I felt like I should tell him about blogging, but some people look at me like I have four horns when I say something about it.
I kind of feel like I should put them on my table as a centerpiece because they are that beautiful, but I also feel like that might be super creepy…. I’m not sure anyone would want to come over and eat at my house if I had a huge knife set on my table!
Or should we talk about the time I was checking out at the grocery store and the teenager bagging my groceries made the comment, “Boy, you have a lot of cheese!” What can I say? This girl loves her Cabot Cheese!
Grocery list for Beer Cheese Soup Recipe
- Chicken broth
- Half and half
- Worcestershire sauce
- Popcorn for garnish
I brushed it off and made some offhanded comment about oh well I am a food blogger. His eyes quickly lit up and he started talking about this Julie’s Eats & Treats blog that his teacher was always talking about.
I giggled, then informed him it was me and I was speaking in his class the next week!
Let’s just say.
I’m a novelty.

A lager or stout would be a great choice. A Pilsner or Amber Ale, would also be delicious! Just like when you’re cooking with wine, only cook with a beer you would drink! When it’s the star of the show, you want to make sure you use good quality ingredients!
Luckily, for me and you that means people love to share their favorite, tried and true recipes with me! SCORE!
