This delicious beer bread with cheddar is a no-knead bread is made with beer, not yeast!
There’s nothing better than homemade bread. I love the smell of bread baking. I love the taste of homemade bread and I definitely love making bread. Sometimes I am short on time and don’t have time to wait for bread to rise. Beer bread is quick and easy and no extra time is involved. This Beer Bread with Cheddar Cheese is amazing!
There’s no need to knead this bread and there’s no rising period. It’s a quick bread made with beer. The beer helps activate the baking powder which causes the bread to rise while it bakes.
What type of cheese do I use?
This bread is loaded with cheddar cheese. It adds a ton of flavor. I used a mild cheddar because that’s what I had on hand but this would be equally as delicious with a sharp cheddar.
What type of beer do I use?
I used a light pilsner style beer. Use your favorite type of beer, but keep in mind, the stronger the beer the stronger the flavor in the bread.
This bread can be sliced up and eaten while it is still warm. I’ve also eaten any leftover slices toasted with butter and honey for breakfast.

Any type of beer works well in this recipe. A stronger flavored beer will create a stronger flavored bread. I've used both a light pilsner or an IPA with great results.
