Easy Beer Bread Recipe. 3 ingredients and so delicious!

There are two words that start with a B that I just love.  Beer and Bread.  Put them together and what do you get?  The most amazing side to any meal or dip or soup you could ask for!  The easiest beer bread you will ever make and you don’t need any sort of packaged mix.

Some of my favorite beers to use in this recipe are craft beers.  A St. Louis brewery Schlafly’s Pale Ale is a favorite as well as seasonal favorites like Pumpkin Ale or Christmas Ale.

3 ingredient beer bread. It's perfect for soups, dips, and even just with butter!

Tip:  If you don’t want to use beer you can also use a soda. Dark sodas such as colas or root beer will give you a darker bread.  Do not use diet soda…it will taste terrible!

3 ingredient Beer Bread Recipe

I have made this bread with any beer I have had on hand.  I have loved every batch of it!    This bread is the perfect accompaniment to my Slow Cooker Beef Roast or my BEST slow cooker chicken.  I also love it with my Signature Chili recipe and cubed up to serve as a utensil for my Bacon Bacon Dip.  <–SO GOOD!  I am not sure you can find a meal that it will not go well with!

This would also be pretty good sliced up and made into Caramel Macchiato French Toast!  I mean beer bread for breakfast is totally acceptable in my world :)  The kids just love to walk around and eat it like it’s candy!  I promise this recipe won’t disappoint!

  1. Hey Cheryl! have been reading your blog and love it.. also, my dear husband desperately loves your chili recipe. I’ve made it twice since your post!!!
    And now THIS……… I am beer bread queen, but I’ve been spending money on the Tastefully Simple mix to now find out that it’s just self-rising flour and sugar!?!? hahaha. Wow – thanks for this hot tip!!!

    1. Thanks Jilly Bean! I’m glad Dave likes it!!! I used to buy the mix from TS also! Your party you had a while back had me hooked! Well you can save your money and use it elsewhere now! It’s just as good! And if you want to get fancy you can also add a few dashes of onion powder to it also! Just to mix things up! Tell Dave I said hello and rub that baby belly for me!

  3. We love beer bread, I wish I had thought to try the pumpkin ale!
    Our recipe is slightly different – 1/2 c. whole wheat flour and 1/2 c less of the self rising…
    3 tbsp sugar

    and then before baking we pur 1/4 cup of melted butter over the top of the bread. Then we repeat this after about 40 minutes (out of the hour), pouring another 1/4c melted butter. (Not healthy, I know.) But the crust is to die for! Hope you can try it and like it!
