Barry's Beer Bread

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by ForeverMama

This is a favorite of ours, especially for breakfast. It's great toasted with a smooth splatter of butter over it. My husband and I originally had it at "The Ellis River House" in Jackson, N.H about 18 years ago. Lucky for us when we stayed there, they were selling a small cookbook which contained recipe's from the local country inns. My kids now love it too and it makes the house smell great. I always make 2 breads because 1 is just not enough. Who is Barry? He was the Inn's owner and chef who served this lovely bread every morning for breakfast with his wonderful mushroom omelet's. Barry if your out there, thx for the recipe and please provide us with your recipe for the omelet.

I'm entering my review without a star rating, so it will not mess up future over-all ratings. I made this bread the other night. I was so excited to try this recipe after seeing the photo and Pammy's review (I posted photos, as well). Sadly, I tried 3 loaves and could not get good results. I am definitely NOT a baker, but I followed the recipe exactly. With that said, I also made 3 batches of muffins and had bad results, as well. I'm starting to believe it may be my oven playing havoc with me. I'm going to have to find out. Anyway, the density of the bread was way off, but the taste was really good. I will try this again when I figure out what the issue is. Thanks for posting. (Made for PRMR)
