Oh this was a keeper! Thanks for such a simple recipie! I used wheat beer and it gave the bread a delicious flavor. I agree that the crust was terrific!

I have tried all kinds of bread recipes for my ABM and this one is everyone's favourite bread! I wouldn't call it sourdough flavoured, just beer bread, but a perfect one I can even cook right in the bread maker, which I never normally do. It comes out perfect! I warm the beer in the microwave, by the way. Thanks for the fantastic recipe! It is a keeper for sure!

We are another group who didn't pick up a big sourdough flavor with this one. Note the five star rating though, this was a great, tasty, flexible, light and airy loaf of bread- and we will be making it again. Thanks KimmieOh!
