This is a great recipe! I used 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of butter on top. It's fantastic with blueberry beer! I used cold beer and it turned out just fine.

My Mom has been making this bread for as long as I can remember -- it's one of our family's most requested dishes. My Dad and I have been known to fight over the heel of the loaf (I know, there are two, but still...) Mom just uses Old Milwaukee beer because that's what Dad drinks, but DH wants me to try making bread with different "gourmet" beers, like berry weiss, etc. What's funny is, I can't stand beer, but I love this bread. A real classic, thanks so much for sharing.

After several attempts at this recipe I adjusted it some. Make sure beer is not a light beer, have beer at room tempature, decrease butter to 1/4 cup (it does not have to be melted...just dot top with chucks) and increase sugar to 1/2 cup. I bake at 350 and use the self-raising flour. My family and friends love it. Also, toasts well.
