Served at The Grit, a famous vegetarian restaurant in Athens, Georgia. They use Blue Moon White Ale because it's hearty but also tangy.

Very good recipe. I conbined 1 1/4 C. AP and 1 1/4 C. Whole Wheat for the flour. Then I used Kona Pipeline Porter for the brewski. I also used an additional 1/4 t. of fresh Rosemary (only cause I love the flavor). Brushed the top with unsalted butter the last 10 minutes. Cheddar disappears and serves only as a binder. Awesome flavor though! Next experiment will substitute a Adobe Chipotle instead of the Jalapeno....stay tuned!

I prepared this this afternoon to accompany dinner and it was loved by all! My only change was to use 2 T. of chopped Poblano Pepper instead of the Jalepeno, and it turned out great. Definitely different than a Tastefully Simple Beer Bread; but quite good.
