  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 packed cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 12 oz can beer
  • 2 tbsp butter


  • In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk together until evenly incorporated.
  • Stir in the cheese.
  • Slowly pour in the beer, and then stir just until mixed together. Don't over mix- the batter's supposed to by lumpy.
  • Spray a 9x5" loaf pan evenly with non stick cooking spray. Then use a spatula to scrape the batter from the bowl into the prepared pan. Scrape down the sides getting all the batter, and then use the spatula to evenly spread it out.
  • Drizzle the melted butter evenly out overtop of the batter.
  • Bake at 375° for 35-40, or until it's cooked through and a butter knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let the bread cool for 10 minutes, then run a butter knife around the edges of the pan to release the loaf.
  • Carefully, transfer the loaf of beer bread to a wire rack to continue cooling.
  • Using a sharp, serrated knife sliced the bread and serve warm.


  • If alcohol's a concern, sub a non-alcoholic beer.
  • Add herbs if you want to make this extra flavor filled. Rosemary, thyme or even crushed garlic would all make a tasty choice
  • If you don't have the cheese on hand, you can omit the cheese and just make beer bread if preferred
