Beer Cheese soup with sausage

It is no secret how much I love soup. A lot of my posts revolve around soup and what the weather is like. In my opinion, a great soup is some of the best comfort food you can find. So on cold or hot days, for lunch or dinner and yes at times breakfast (I know how weird that sounds) I will always be up for a nice bowl of soup.

2 tablespoons plus 2 tsp olive oil, keep separate

1 yellow onion, chopped

4 garlic cloves, chopped
