1st thing is, this is a general comment about beer bread, not this specific recipe. You should be aware that the flavor of the beer is very obvious in the finished product. The 2nd time my daughter & I attempted beer bread we put in lots of cinnamon, allspice & nutmeg. The flavor of the beer was just too intense for us.

Use a dark lager beer for best results!

I make this recipe a lot, but only use 1/4 cup sugar or less. 1 cup sugar seems a lot for a dinner bread! Also, agree with another poster, put some melted butter or margarine on the top. Very important to sift all dry ingredients for airiness! Quick bread simply cannot get easier than this. Also, roll the dough out, sprinkle with raisans and cinnamon, roll it up, slap in a greased pan - great tea bread or toast.

I made this with a beer and also made five mini loafs with fruit punch (carbondated). They were great!

I made this bread for supper this evening and we LOVED it! I used to purchase a mix for $6/loaf plus the cost of the beer, and found this recipe not only a lot cheaper but much tastier! I did add one thing though, and that was that I brushed melted margarine over the top of the bread after it baked. Next time I will grease my pan....I did have some trouble getting it out of the loaf pan.

Just baked a loaf using this recipe. It was easy and quick. The bread is very good, but probably would have been better using a non-lite beer.
