Beer Bread




Here’s a recipe for Beer Bread:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (or self-rising flour)
  • 1 (12 oz) bottle or can of beer (any flavor, warm or room temperature)
  • Butter or cooking spray for greasing the bread pan


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a bread pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour and beer. Stir until just combined; do not overmix. The batter will be thick and lumpy.
  3. Pour the batter into the greased bread pan, spreading it evenly.
  4. Bake the beer bread in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Once baked, remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes.
  6. Carefully transfer the beer bread from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Slice the cooled beer bread and serve. Enjoy!

Additional Tips:

  • For a lighter beer flavor, use a light beer. For a more prominent beer flavor, use a darker beer. Some suggest using a beer with a pickled flavor for added depth.
  • You can experiment with different flavors of beer to create unique variations of beer bread.
  • Self-rising flour can be used instead of all-purpose flour, but adjust the amount of baking powder and salt accordingly if using self-rising flour.
  • If you don’t have beer on hand or prefer not to use it, you can substitute it with soda (such as club soda or ginger ale) in the same amount.
  • While room temperature beer is often recommended for beer bread, using cold beer can also yield good results, as mentioned in your experience.
