Made this bread for St. Patty's Day 2011 and I received rave reviews from coworkers and my husband. I made some additions to this easy and already tasty recipe: replaced 1 cup of all purpose flour with Rye flour and 1/4 cup of vital wheat gluten, and added 1 Tbsp of Caraway seeds. Everyone said it was the perfect amount of rye with the savoriness of the caraway. The wheat gluten helped the bread rise beautifully (if not a bit lopsided too!) due to the addition of a heartier flour. Great recipe, will definitely make again anytime I've got Guinness at hand and we need a moist, delicious bread!

This is by far the best *beer bread* I have ever eaten! Made as written using bread flour and as others commented, 50 minute bake time was just right. Thanks Felix for posting such a great beer bread recipe :) Served with Recipe #361481

Yummy! You can definitely taste the Guiness in it. You could cut down the cooking time like the others mentioned; my crust was a little hard. This recipe was so easy!
