This is a very easy recipe. However, I used a beer that we didn't really care for the taste of (it was extra bitter) so I would not recommend using a beer that you dislike. It was still pretty good and we will be making it again... but with a light beer. :-)

I've made this tons of times and always comes out great. It has the same flavor as the much pricier box mixes. Along with sifting the flour, a big key is not to overmix the dough. You just want to mix it until all of the dry ingredients are moist or it will come out tough. We always have cheap beer and the since the mix can be used with soft drinks or juice as well, I don't know how much the type of beer you use has to do with the taste. You can add all types of things into the bread to adjust it for you meal, seasonings, cheese, etc. Always a hit at our house!

I make this all the time. It is perfect. I use 3/4 cup butter. I have used probably 10 different kinds of beer, and every single loaf turns out to be delicious! Goes amazingly with soup, chili, stew, etc., or is just perfect on its own!

Ah, the tang of a good beer bread. I used 1/3 whole wheat flour and a pale Indian ale. The butter made the top all crumbly good and the lesser quantity was more than enough. The bread was tender and yummy inside. Nice with cheese. Would be great with soup or stew. I like the ease of making beer bread.

Super easy and sooo yummy! I did make a few modifications. Used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 2 cups AP flour, only 1/4 cup of melted butter. I also sprinkled some dried minced onion and poppy seeds on top right before baking. Can't wait to make again!

Whoops. I sifted but my loaf didn't manage to raise, but I think my baking powder expired a while ago. I wound up with a giant biscuit, but the flavor is incredible. I'll be trying this one again with a little fresher supplies!

Just made your recipe and tasted it, it is delish. Not compact or dense at all and very easy to make.
I used a Guinness and it adds a delightful flavor to the bread. Thanks for sharing.

One of the few baked things allowed on my temporary low Iodine diet -- unfortunately my self-rising flour was out of date (significantly !), but I was desperate to have something for lunch ! Prepared as listed except for the butter, substituted light olive oil, and it was certainly edible ! (Gobbled up quickly !). Have bought some new flour and plan to keep this on hand for snacks. It is a great recipe which is quick and easy, with pantry staples. Thanks for posting !!
