If my Rosemary Garlic Bread is running a full marathon this Whole Wheat Beer Bread is going outside to get the mail. It’s offensively easy.
4 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups regular flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons baking powder
Okay now slowly add in 28 ounces of beer. Two bottles of beer makes 24 ounces so you can add 4 ounces of water or suck it up and crack open a third beer knowing you’ll have to finish the last 8 ounces yourself.
Pour dough into two greased loaf pans. Brush with an egg wash (one egg mixed with a few tablespoons of water) and bake at 375 for 42 minutes. Take the loaves out and brush with melted butter and put back in the oven for two or three minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes.

Since I was making this for the Beyonce Concert/Super Bowl I did whole wheat to somewhat offset the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies we had after dinner. I served it with Chicken Chili and some fixings. You could do all white flour though or add cheddar/dill/chives/whatever. DID BEYONCE KILL IT OR WHAT? I felt like such a loser shoving my face with chili and beer bread as she gyrated the Super bowl into a black out.
Leftover beer bread is very good grilled with a tinge of olive oil and seasonings.
