Beer Bread is a deceptively simple bread with only 3 ingredients! Once you learn this easy bread recipe, you'll find yourself making it again and again!


Units Scale
  • 3 cups SELF RISING flour (***this is important-if you don't have this see note below***)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 12oz. bottle of beer at room temperature



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease a 9-by-5-by-3 standard loaf pan
  3. Whisk dry ingredients together
  4. Pour in beer.  With a big wooden spoon, quickly mix ingredients together until everything is incorporated.  Don't over mix, you need to get it in the oven before the carbonation fades.
  5. Drop into the pan and level it out.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes.  This is very forgiving.  If it doesn't look done bake another 5 (max 10) minutes.  Every time I have made it, it has been perfect at 50 minutes.
  7. Remove from pan and enjoy.  It cuts better when it cools but ohmygoodness is it tasty with butter when HOT !


  1. If you don't have Self Rising Flour make your own! For every one cup of flour add 1 1/2 tsp of baking soda and 1/4 tsp of salt so for this recipe use-3 cups of all purpose flour, 4 1/2 tsp baking soda, and 3/4 tsp of salt
  2. You can change the recipe dramatically by changing beers-my loaf today has Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale, yum! It tastes just as good with your run-of-the mill regular beer too though!
