One of our Pop'rs Veterans contributed this recipe to the cause. Aunt Julie just loves Beer Cheese Soup, so thanks, Tracy P.!

Tracy P.'s Beer Cheese Soup
1 stick of butter
1 cup flour
4 cans chicken broth
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 jar (15 oz.) Cheese Whiz
6 oz. beer
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup freeze-dried chives

Melt butter in pot. Add flour and cook on low heat for five minutes, stirring constantly.
Add chicken broth gradually, while stirring to prevent lumps. Stir in whipping cream.
Add Cheese Whiz and stir until melted and smooth. (Requires a little patience!)
Add beer, Worcestershire sauce and chives, and simmer 15 minutes, stirring constantly. (Trust me when I say that if it starts boiling, it will foam up and over quicker than you can come up with a catchy colloquialism. Mark my words. Clean up while it cooks if you must, but do NOT turn your back on it. Just sayin'.)
Garnish with popcorn and serve!

I like the idea of the beer, but the Cheez whiz is a little gross to me. I wonder if you could use real cheddar, and maybe some milk? The soup looks yummy in the photo though.
