As Promised… Beer Bread!

Here’s my most favourite pick me up ever to make. It takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to make and you will become everybody’s new best friend! All you need is some beer!


You will need:

  • 3 1/4 cup of flour
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 14 oz of beer (about one bottle and 4oz of water, or one tallboy can)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (half goes into the batter, the other goes onto right before baking)
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves
  • fresh rosemary

Bake @ 350 for 1h to 1h15

* I would stay away from stout beers for this recipe. Anything from a lager to an indian pale ale/amber beer is perfectly fine

** I love the garlic and rosemary in my bread, but feel free to switch it up. Dill is great, or chili pepper flakes, anything that comes to mind!


Mix all the dry ingredients together, then create a well to pour in your beer and 1/4 cup of butter. Mix all together, until there are no more air pockets full of flour. If it’s still too dry, you can try adding 1 tbsp. of water at a time. Once everything is ready to go, put it into a bread tin pan thing for the oven.

* You can either line the tin with parchment paper or grease it with butter

Right before it goes in, drizzle the leftover melted butter on top of the batter then pop it in the oven for 1h to 1h15.

Needless to say, if you use the garlic and rosemary, your place will smell like heaven. This literally is a huge loaf of garlic bread and beer… Could you ask for anything better?

Didn’t think so!

Try it out and tell me what you think! It’s amazing in the toaster the next day with a little Dijon mustard 😉
