A basic, traditional beer bread.


  • 3 cups flour (sifted)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (12 ounce) cans beer
  • 1/2 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients and beer. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Pour melted butter over mixture.

Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.

NOTES: This recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust (like a traditional bread) mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it over the top.
