Beer Mac n Cheese Soup

Yum
If you haven't noticed...I tend to obsess over the weather a teeny tiny bit...
This past Monday we were in short sleeves and could have even worn shorts, if you wanted to.
Personally, the season of shorts has long passed me by...my tan is gone and my skin is already looking pasty.
Anyway, we have been degree sliding all this week and even had snow on Halloween; not completely unusual for Halloween in the Midwest.
But, it is soup season and I have the best...THE VERY BEST soup!
This almost makes living through another Chicago winter worth it!
Coming from me, you know this soup must be good.
