Low Carb Beer Cheese Soup Recipe [Keto-friendly, Thick & Rich]


This beer cheese soup has all the elements of a great meal: heavy cream, crumbly bacon, melted cheese, and low-carb beer. Make sure you check out our article on keto friendly beers (

We use a bit of xanthan gum and cheese as a thickener to help the soup be just as creamy as higher carb versions of this recipe. You can find this in the gluten-free section of your grocery store. If for some reason you can’t find it locally, then try ordering it online. We use it a lot for thickening sauces and baking keto recipes.

  1. Looks great, definitely gonna try it soon. But here's my "note:" Increase butter to 2 tbsp, maybe 3. Double the total amount of bacon used; use a chef's knife to mince half of it very fine, like garlic. Melt butter to start, but before the onion, throw in the minced half of the bacon. Sauté the bacon on low for about 7 – 10 minutes or so. Then, increase the heat to medium and carry on with the recipe exactly as you have it here. This infuses the butter with bacon flavor which then permeates the whole soup, rather than only tasting the bacon garnish. Enjoy!
