  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 12 oz beer


  • In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. 
  • Stir in cheddar cheese.
  • Add 1 beer and stir until all dry ingredients are incorporated. The mixture will be thick. 
  • Pour mixture out onto counter and gently fold over once or twice so all ingredients are mixed in.
  • Shape into a loaf.
  • Place loaf in a grease bread pan.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes.
  • Allow bread to cool at least 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  • Bread can be sliced while still warm.



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.
