Best Beer For Beer Bread

The best beer for beer bread is a lager, brown ale, or even porters. You will want to use room temperature beer.

This will help the bread turn out lighter and a fluffier texture. Using cold beer will make it a bit denser.

Can You Taste Beer in Beer Bread

You will find that depending on the brand and style of beer will affect the overall flavor. But when you bite into the bread it won’t taste like beer. If that makes sense!

This bread is a quick bread recipe that has cheddar and garlic for a delicious savory flavor. A great alternative to not using yeast.

Can I Swap The Cheese In This Recipe

Absolutely! If you want to swap the cheese feel free to reach for your favorite. Do a mild cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, or shred up your favorite cheese. Even mozzarella would offer a mild flavor.

Essentially this bread can be made into anything you would like!

Do You Knead Beer Bread

Best Way To Store

Place your bread in the fridge for up to five days. Storing in the fridge will extend the life of this bread. The cheese is best when refrigerated so it doesn’t go bad.
