This recipe was very good and moist. It was very easy to make! It's good for unexpected guests! I served it with chicken breast, corn and cabernet. It went very well with everything.

WOW, this was really good and really easy. I really felt like baking bread but I didn't have any yeast...I stumbled across this recipe and remembered I had some non-alcholic beer and decided to use it and it worked.....the bread was light and sweet with a beautiful golden glaze..thanks Inez

Good stuff! I tried this twice, once with a cheap light beer that was on hand, and once with an expensive imported stout. The bread made with the cheap beer tasted better.

Very good and extremely easy! This is exactly like the expensive beer bread mixes you can purchase at gourmet food stores, only much cheaper. I want to try it with some herbs added in or maybe some sundried tomatoes.

I love beer bread, too, and here's a hint to help with the crunchy crust: Place the loaf in a large Ziploc bag while it's still hot and let it rest for at least 1/2 hour. The steam will make the crust very tender and easily sliceable, without affecting the taste.

I thought this was wonderful!! Perfectly moist and dense - w/ lovely flavor! My hubby actually thought it was slightly too bland, so I might play w/ that a little, for him - though I thought it was really perfect! He would have given this 4 stars, but I'm giving it 5!

I used Blue Moon beer, and added a bit of honey into the bread - as well as one T of ground flax. I did but it in a ziplock after baking, and that seemed to make the crust just right! Thank you!!

Update: I've made this a couple more times and used Guinness instead. Now both my hubby and I love it!!!! I will always use Guinness in this, from now on. Wonderful!!

Very easy, dense, moist loaf of bread. It was quite crusty, so I did the warm bread in a ziplock bag trick and the crust softened nicely. For my taste, I would add more salt. Goes well with soup. Thanks MizzNezz.

The Cheaper the Beer, the Better the Bread. I tried an expensive brand we like to drink and it turned out horrible.

Delicious bread and a very rustic appearance. A little crusty on the outside and tender on the inside. Tasted best warm, right out of the oven. I served with Nurse Di's Louisiana Jambalaya. We were in heaven. Thanks.

Fast, easy and cheap to make. My husband really liked it. It does give a bit of a rustic loaf in appearance. I put it in a bag after baking to partially eliminate the too crunchy crust--no problem.
