I love beer bread but 12oz of beer is not enough for 3 cups of flour. You could stir the mixture for 12 hours and the flour would still not mix in. I'm continually looking for a better beer bread recipe but most use 12 oz of beer and it just doesn't work. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a wonderful bread and very easy to make. I used Yeungling and it was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
for people griping about a dense loaf....make sure you sift your flour. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very happy with this. We made a couple of modifications to our liking. Substituted all purpose flour and 3/4 tsp salt and one small packet of instant rapid rise yeast for the self rising flour. Reduced the recipe sugar to 1/4 cup and then substituted clover honey in its place. (The honey complemented the full bodied dark ale we used.) Also added 2 Tablespoons canola oil. The dough sponge was a bit loose and it was necessary to work in about 1/2 cup additionqal flour to tighten it up. Place in loaf pan. After 45 min rising time the result was a terrific loaf of bread. It would make even better dinner rolls if baked in muffin tins. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A little too sweet. Next time I will use less than half of the sugar item not reviewed by moderator and published

Soo Easy!!! Soo Yummy!!! Must Try ;) item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious and easy to make! I used a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat beer and would not do so again - this recipe is begging to be made with a dark beer like a porter, Guinness, etc. Definitely use salted butter for on top - delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this several times. This is quick & easy to make. I don't have self rising flour on hand, I looked up the substitution for it using all purpose flour = 3c AP flour, 1 1/2 TBS baking powder, 3/4 tsp salt. It came out great! Easy & versatile recipe. I've substituted club soda for the beer & it is still tasty. Goes great with beef stew & chili. item not reviewed by moderator and published
