Quick and Easy Beer Bread

This quick beer bread has only six ingredients so it comes together easily, perfect if you need an easy party recipe. It makes the perfect accompaniment to chili, stew, or soup. And who can say no to homemade, fresh-baked bread? I sure can’t.

Did you make this recipe?


3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
one 12-ounce bottle of beer (such as Heineken)
2 tablespoons butter (unsalted or salted based on preference), melted


  1. Preheat oven to 375F and spray an 8×4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside.
  2. To a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and stir to combine.
  3. Add the beer and stir to combine.
  4. Turn batter out into prepared pan, smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
  5. Evenly drizzle with melted butter.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean of with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Allow bread to cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving. Bread is best fresh, but will keep airtight at room temp for up to 4 days.

  11. I just made two loaves and am halfway through one of them. Delicious! I made soup so this is perfect…if they last til supper. lol

  12. Averie, this has to be the easiest bread ever. I did enjoy it with two bowls of bean soup with smoked sausage and two slices of bread. I can’t stop eating it! Thanks for a great recipe. Actually, I love your site and recipes. Oh, it’s wonderful toasted with peanut butter.:)

  13. DELICIOUS! My 15 year old son actually made the bread – super easy and very tasty. Do you think it would taste differently depending on what type of beer you use? Stout versus a light beer for example – just wondering

    • I definitely think that it will taste differently depending on what beer you use. I made a pumpkin beer bread with pumpkin beer a couple falls ago and that one tasted much different than this one. I mean not ‘hugely’ different but you know what I mean; the flavor does change. Have fun playing around!

  14. Thanks so much! Looks delicious!
