I first had this recipe about 25 years ago the first time my older sister had a family dinner at her home when she was just out of college. I've tried another beer bread from this site, but I like this one better. It even got great reviews from my picky friend that doesn't like most beer breads. It also makes the most amazing grilled cheese sandwiches..just slice it thin after it's completely cooled. Based on results from a reviewer, I suggest you use a glass loaf pan or reduce the cooking time slightly if using metal.
