Can You Help Me Recreate This German Soup Recipe?

Good Questions

Q: I've been searching for ages for a German soup recipe. I was introduced to it by a former roommate, the son of an Army chaplain who grew up in Germany, but sadly I never learned the name for the soup, much less the recipe. It involved lots of onions, garlic, bacon, mushrooms, and beer, and it was served with large sourdough bread dumplings cooked in the soup near the end.

I would love to try again, but all my book and internet searches for recipes have come up fruitless. Does anyone know what this is called, and where I can find a recipe?

Editor: Megan, this sounds amazing! We don't have any leads on a recipe, unfortunately, but hopefully one of our Austrian or German readers will. Any ideas, guys? We want to try this soup now too!
