I love beer. I love cheese. This combines both of my loves into a tasty quick bread. Use the type of beer you enjoy drinking. I have found heavier beers such as the lovely flavors that come out during Oktoberfest time make the best cheddar beer breads. I use extra sharp cheddar, but if you don't like it you can substitute normal cheddar for this recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together, mixing in beer last. Batter should be the consistency of Bisquick. Spoon into a well greased bread pan and bake at 350 degrees (f) for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
  2. Let bread rest in it's pan for about 10 minutes then let it cool on a rack for another 10 or so. If you can wait that long!

I used a Sam Adams Lager and some nice sharp Tillamook cheese, and everything worked as it should. One of us not accustomed to beer felt the beer flavor was too strong; that's going to be a matter of taste and preference. Baking time and ingredient amounts seemed to be right on the button. This bread has a very substantial, rustic, cheesy feel, almost creamy mouth texture, and robust flavor. Made for PAC.

Seemed a little gooey after baking full time. Good flavor though, used regular Budweiser.
