Post Holiday Party Beer Bread

If you're like me and my husband, you do not agree with all your friends taste in beer. We don't hold it against them but we tend to drink craft or microbrews rather than a domestic.

After so many holiday parties that our guests have graciously brought their favorite beer, we find our fridge door occupied with beer that doesn't match our taste. Not being allowed to drink beer since I have a little one growing inside me, and my husband still working on a six pack from a month ago, we've realized we won't be getting to the cans our guests left behind any time soon.
I searched to find an easy beer bread recipe to use up what was left and found this recipe. Only change I made was actually referenced on the page, less melted butter. I think a few tablespoons of melted butter over the top would be more than enough, but a treat's a treat and you choose what you eat! 

Quick as anything we are down to only beer we (meaning my husband) will drink and have yummy snack that freezes well or is a great gift to share with others.

PS It also made the house smell great when my husband came home from work!


  1. Give us the recipe!!!!

  2. The link is in my post to the recipe I found, wanted to give credit to the original source (

    3 cups flour, 1 T baking powder, 1 t salt, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 can of beer. Mix these together and then pour into greased loaf pan. Pour 1/4 cup of melted butter over the top (recipe called for 1/2 cup. Next time I make it I will use even less!) bake for one hour at 375. Let cool for 15 min and then take out of pan to cool the rest of the way on a wire rack.

    The website itself has some great tips from others who have made this recipe as well!

    1. Also, the pictures show a double batch! I really wanted to get rid of that beer to free some space in my fridge door
