Beer Cheese Potato Soup is a delicious comfort food made with onion, celery, carrot, beef broth, milk, garlic, potatoes, cheddar cheese and Guiness Draught Stout topped with bacon crumbles and chives. 


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 yellow onion, (finely diced)
  • 2 celery, (diced)
  • 2 carrots, (peeled and diced)
  • 3 garlic cloves, (minced)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 11 ounce bottle Guiness Draught Stout, (can swap for another stout)
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 large Russet potatoes, (peeled and diced)
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, (shredded)
  • sea salt
  • ground pepper
  • chives, chopped
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup water (if needed)


  1. Rinse the celery, carrots and potatoes. Peel the carrots and potatoes.
  2. Dice the celery, carrots, potatoes and onion. Mince the garlic cloves.
  3. Melt the butter in a soup pot on the stovetop on a medium-high heat.
  4. Add carrots, celery and onion to the pot. Stir and cook until onion is translucent.
  5. Add garlic and stir until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  6. Immediately add the flour followed by broth, beer and milk. Stir well.
  7. Add potatoes. Stir and bring to a boil. Add a little water at this point if the liquid does not completely cover potatoes.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste. Be generous with the salt to balance the bitterness of the beer.
  9. Reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when poked with a fork. Time can vary depending on the size the potatoes were diced.
  10. Add the cheese. Stir. Turn off heat and serve.
  11. Garnish with chopped chives and extra crispy crumbled bacon.
