In a medium size bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Add in beer and combine with a rubber spatula.
Pour into a greased bread loaf pan. Pour melted butter over the top of the loaf. This will create the golden brown crunchy crust.

IS BEER VEGAN?
The short answer is yes! The four main ingredients in beer are water, a grain like barley or wheat, yeast, and hops — a flower that provides beer’s distinctive, bitter taste.
The yeast ferments and digests the sugar from the grain to produce alcohol. This easy beer bread is the perfect vegan treat!
I tried making this recipe with buckwheat flour in place of the all-purpose, and it turned out to be very dense bread. I mean, it was edible, but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
You could try this with gluten free 1:1 all-purpose flour, I imagine that would be your best bet! If you test it out, let me know in the comments how it turns out!
WHAT TO SERVE WITH THE BEER BREAD?
Eat it as a snack with vegan butter or vegan cheese!
Slather peanut butter and jam on it!
I LOVE having a slice for breakfast with my
. favourite green smoothie recipe Homemade chili or soup makes the perfect companion for the homemade bread!
Storing homemade vegan beer bread properly will help maintain its freshness and taste. Follow these steps to store your bread effectively:
Cooling: Allow the vegan beer bread to cool completely after baking. Placing it on a wire rack helps air circulate around the loaf and prevents moisture buildup.
Wrap: Once cooled, wrap the bread tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Ensure the entire loaf is covered to retain moisture and prevent it from drying out.
Airtight Container: Alternatively, you can place the wrapped bread in an airtight container. A resealable plastic container or a bread box works well for this purpose.
Room Temperature: Store the wrapped or containerized vegan beer bread at room temperature. Avoid refrigerating the bread, as it can cause it to become dry and stale faster.
Avoid Direct Sunlight: Store the bread away from direct sunlight and heat sources. Sunlight and heat can accelerate the staling process and affect the texture and taste of the bread.
Consumption Timeline: Vegan beer bread is best enjoyed within the first 2-3 days after baking. As it doesn’t contain preservatives, its shelf life is shorter than store-bought bread.
Freezing (Optional): If you have leftover vegan beer bread that you won’t consume within a few days, freezing is a great way to extend its shelf life.
Slice the bread and place individual slices in a resealable freezer bag or wrap them in plastic wrap.
Label the bag with the date to keep track of its freshness.
Store the bread in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.
Thaw individual slices as needed by letting them come to room temperature or lightly toasting them.
TIPS FOR MAKING YOUR OWN BREAD
This recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust (like a traditional bread) mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it over the top of the bread.
SIFT YOUR FLOUR – Sifting flour for bread recipes is a must! The first few times I made this recipe I didn’t sift the flour, and it was still amazing, but WAY better when you sift the flour! Without sifting you are compacting the flour and will turn your bread into more of a “hard biscuit”. If you do not have a sifter, use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure. Try it once the “correct” way and you will see an amazing difference in the end product. I kept this recipe vegan by using Earth Balance vegan butter. However, if you’re not vegan, you can definitely use regular butter.
When combining the ingredients, do not to over mix the batter. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, not an electric mixer.
I have made this recipe with Coors Light and Old Milwaukee, but I think almost any kind of beer would work! I wouldn’t recommend using a beer that’s very dark with a strong flavour, or an IPA. Stick to lighter beers for a light and fluffy texture.
The final result should be a thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A BRICK! 😉
