The only Beer Bread Recipe you will ever need! It's all about the beer (of course) and the butter!
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare a 9x5 glass loaf pan with butter or pan-release. (If you don't have glass try and use a light colored pan as a dark pan might bake the edges too quickly.)
Pour in the beer and stir all ingredients until just combined and there are no dry parts. The batter will be thick.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the bread is golden brown on top. There should be about 1/2 inch of melted butter bubbling at the bottom. (I start checking at 35 minutes and my bread is usually done. I have a convection oven.)
**If using granulated sugar you can use 1-4 tablespoons. The use of sugar is based on the type of beer used and your preferences. When using a lite beer I used 2 tablespoons and found it to be sweet enough. If you prefer a sweeter beer bread use all 4 tablespoons.
**I listed salt as optional. We love how to brings out the flavor but again, it really depends on what kind of beer you use.
