I followed the recipe exactly but didn't realize that I only had a 1.5 lb setting but it turned out great. I can't wait to make it again.

Oh, my, this is tasty!!! I used a blend of medium, sharp and extra aged cheddar and threw in about a teaspoon of cracked black pepper. I also used a very dark beer. This is so, so good I might just have to start keeping beer in the house. Thanks for posting!

This is pretty tasty. I used some sharp cheese I had laying around and some medium cheddar. I used too much cheese as I had to keep adding flour as it was very sticky. I removed after the rising and punched it down and made 2 loaves for the oven. It rose and fell when it started baking but I think that was my fault. I'll try again using the recommended cheeses.

Oh My!! I must confess I made this bread only b/c for some reason we had an opened can of beer that had been in the fridge for a couple days. So I viewed this as challenge since I hate to waste anything! So I searched Zaar and found this recipe. So glad!! This bread is delicious! I didn't taste the beer much, but we used a light beer. I must admit I made this pretty late and I overshot the cheese by probably 1/2 cup! But I must say I'll probably do it again on purpose! I used sharp cheddar that we had on hand. The bread is moist, soft and will definitely be made again and again! (Will have to 'accidentally' open a can...) :) I made the dough in breadmaker then placed in loaf pan, let it rise for about 1/2 hour, then baked at 350 for about 30 minutes.

Made this recipe for the ZWT3 (Great Britain/Ireland). This bread smelt wonderful while baking. It had a wonderful taste and I believe this is the best beer and cheese bread I've ever had. I followed the directions exacty and used Budweiser beer. Thanks Geema for a great recipe!

This bread takes on the character of the cheese you use. I used an Irish Porter cheese, which I thought very appropriate for this bread. This cheese has a strong flavor which came through beautifully in this loaf. I also subbed some whole wheat flour for part of the bread flour, which I believe also adds a dimension of flavor to the loaf.

Wow! Delicious bread. Especially when I dipped the crusts in alfredo sauce. Mmmmmm. I didn't read the directions as carefully as I should have and accidentally added all 12 oz. of beer instead of the 10 oz. called for, but I just added a bunch of extra flour and it worked fine. Was easy and delicious! Thanks for the recipe.
