  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 14 oz of your favorite beer you can opt for a nice flavorful one or stick with something more generic like a Coors Light (there are no right or wrongs here)
  • 1/2 cup butter divided and melted
  • 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 -2 tbsp freshly cracked black pepper


  • Place flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl and use a fork to evenly stir together.
  • Create a small well in the center of the flour mixture and add in the beer (pour slowly), 1/4 cup of the melted butter, cheese, and black pepper. Stir them all until the dough just comes together. Do not over mix! (small flour pockets can be gently stirred away; one or two remaining flour pockets are okay).
  • Transfer the batter into a prepared (lightly greased) loaf pan. Pour the other quarter cup of melted butter over top the batter and bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the loaf.
  • Remove the bread from the oven and let rest for about 5 minutes. Carefully remove the loaf from the pan to a wire rack and allow it to cool until just warm to the touch (about 1 hour and 30 minutes), before slicing.
  • Slice and serve as is, or with generous pats of butter (just sayin!)
