Baking a loaf of homemade beer bread is one of the easiest things to do and it taste delicious served alongside a a cozy dinner of comfort food, like a bowl of homemade chili.

My husband and I received a bread maker as a wedding gift when we were married 18 years ago.

It’s probably still sitting in the cabinet and has been rarely used.

I find it’s easier to just make your own homemade bread with a few ingredients already in your pantry then it is to go buy a mix made for your bread maker.

If you’re like me and you hesitate making bread that calls for a packet of yeast, you’ll love this easy simple recipe.

There are no worries getting the water just warm enough. Just grab a bottle of beer. The yeast is in the beer.

Use any beer you like. But for this beer bread recipe I used Leinenkugel’s Grapefruit Shandy. This is one of my favorite beers along with Blue Moon Belgian White.

Grapefruit and orange flavors are perfect in this beer bread recipe paired with the sweetness of raw honey.

An hour in the oven and the smell of fresh bread will bring them running.

A bit of warm butter spread over each slice and I promise the loaf will disappear quickly.

Wheat beers pair well with honey. If you’d like to use a dark stout give my Guinness Beer Bread recipe a try.

  • I’ve only used beer in the batter for deep frying veggies, but I like the idea to add it to the bread dough and I love how soft and moist it looks. I bet the flavor is also super delicious!

  • You had me at the first picture! I would eat way too many pieces of this… And I totally agree – loaf-pan bread over bread-maker bread any day – it really is so much easier!

  • I just took my ham hock out of the freezer so I could make some pinto bean soup and serve it with this bread on the side! Can’t wait to try it!

  • Oh, I love making beer breads and the combination of grapefruit and honey sounds lovely. It’s so pretty, too.

  • I’ve always been hesitant to try baking bread, but you make this look so easy! Do you let the dough rise at all? I love the idea of using beer, knowing that the yeast is already in there! Brilliant. This bread just looks so fluffy and tasty. I’m going out to get these ingredients right now!!!

  • What type of flour? All purpose or self rising? I plan on making it this week, thanks!

  • I made this beer bread yesterday. Two infact. Kept one (already all gone) ,and gave one to my son to take home. Woke up this morning and made another one for breakfast.
