    I usually make this soup using red wine, but the beer has good flavour aswell. However, I do recommend pre cooking the onions prior to putting them in the slow cooker. It could be that my slow cooker is old and doesn't heat as well, but I had my soup cooking for over 10 hours and the onions still weren't soft. Other than that, I will definitely be making this again, despite not being a "soup" person.
