Recipe by Derf
This loaf is great with almost any meal to take the place of dinner rolls. Delisious with a bowl of soup, or just as a snack buttered.

I liked this. It was more dense than I thought it would be but I like the flavor. I used a honey brown lager and could taste it in the bread. I will fix this again. It went well with potato soup.
