Welcoming the chillier days ahead with this Brie and Cheddar Apple Beer Soup. It’s cozy, creamy, extra cheesy, and totally delicious. Cheesy beer soup made simply in one pot with pumpkin beer, sharp cheddar cheese, and creamy brie cheese. A little bit of apple adds a sweetness that pairs perfectly with all the cheese. It’s such a delicious autumn twist on a classic beer cheese soup…and so good!
It might still be September, but October is just two days away. And with chillier temps arriving (we have potential snow on tonight and Thursday), it’s time for fall soup. I held out until the end of the month to share this recipe. But it’s one I’ve been excited about for a while now.
Do you guys remember those hard cider pretzels I made a few weeks ago? Well, I made them as an awesome game day snack. But, I also made them because I really, really wanted pretzels and cheesy soup.
If you’ve never dipped and dunked a soft pretzel into soup, I’m very excited to tell you all about it.
What I love about this recipe is just how easy it is, one pot and totally no fuss.
Simply cook down an onion and add some thyme and sage. Then add flour to thicken the soup up. Now add milk and broth, plus a touch of cider. Then just add your favorite beer (I love to use pumpkin)!
Next, throw in an apple. Yes, I know that may sound weird, but think of it like this, you love apples on a cheese board, right? Of course…well, this is the same thing. The apple balances the sharpness of the cheddar cheese. It is so good, promise!
Now simmer the soup until the apple is soft, then puree it. Next, add in the cheeses, both the cheddar and creamy brie. Stir until melted, then season it up with cayenne pepper.
Easy, EASY, but yet so delicious.
And also, very much like a broccoli cheddar soup, just minus the broccoli and plus an apple.
Not going to lie, there’s no better bread to pair with this soup than these pretzels. This is simply the best combination. They’re not technically part of the recipe, but this soup really is best enjoyed with soft pretzels on the side. They really complete the meal.
A with that, I’m going to leave you all to it. If your Wednesday night needs some warming soup, this should be it. I’m actually beyond excited to make this again today on Instagram stories, it’s the perfect fall soup.

I just didn’t love this. I wanted to. I normally love your recipes. But following it exactly the soup was too watery. I went back in with some flour and milk and it thickened a little, but now has that slight flour texture / taste. There is also a little bit of an acid component missing for me: it needs something to zing and pop the flavours, which I’ve seen you do recipe after recipe.
Or maybe I did something wrong I can’t find. All equally possible.
Still a giant fan!
