Don't despair! If you have some extra cream or crème fraîche around, stir some in and it will temper the flavor.

There are a few ways to go, depending on what texture you want and what you have on hand:
1) add more broth (will give a thinner, more chicken-tasting soup)
2) cook more sweet potatoes, or other root vegetables (carrot, parsnip, regular potato, turnip), and add to the soup. (thicker soup, especially if you leave some or all in chunks)
3) sauté some more onions and add them. or garlic. or both. (more aromatic)
4) add more dairy. either liquid like milk or cream, to dilute the beer taste. Or something with a sour edge like yoghurt or sour cream as a garnish, again to change the taste. (smoother taste, with a possible fermented element).
Good luck, and tell us how your soup improves with your modifications.
