Wisconsin’s Favorite Beer Cheese Soup
The name says it all! A soup made of beer and cheese-trust me y’all will love this thick, creamy goodness.
Having a family with deep roots in Wisconsin there are certain foods that I’ve come to love and crave but could only get them at my grandma’s house; beer cheese soup is one of those dishes. I have such fond memories of enjoying Sundays with her while eating beer bread, grilled beer brats with sauerkraut and beer cheese soup and beer…..(I am sensing a theme here!) while the Packers played on TV. Man, I would give my right arm to have just one more day like that with her.
This is perfect for a tailgating party or a Sunday football game day get-together. Grill up some beer brats, heat some sauerkraut, put on a pot of Beer Cheese soup and serve with some Wisconsin Beer Bread. Heck while you’re at it, root for the true Cheeseheads! Go Pack GO!
