It’s so perfect for serving on St. Paddy’s day and beyond. Also, I’m thinking it will be a new go-to to serve with hearty dishes like soups, stews, and chilis.

Easy Beer Bread with Brown Sugar Honey Butter

Come on, what’s a fresh-baked loaf of bread without a little butter! This brown sugar honey butter concoction is simply divine when you slather a bit on a warm slice of the beer bread.

Our friends, Goodie2Spoons, who created the beer bread recipe, recommended drizzling a little honey on top as well. Do yourself a favor and take that recommendation! This recipe comes together really quickly, so let’s give it a try.

Easy Beer Bread REcipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Rise Time: 90-120 minutes
Bake Time: 25 minutes
Yield: 2 Medium Loaves

Beer Bread Recipe Ingredients
3 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 ¾ cup beer (room temp)
½ cup sugar
¾ tsp salt
1 packet active dry yeast
2 tbsp butter (melted)

Brown Sugar Honey Butter Ingredients
1 stick unsalted butter (room temp)
1 tbsp honey
2 tsp brown sugar
½ tsp salt

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease 2 medium loaf pans and set aside.
  2. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, sugar and dry yeast. Mix together with a wooden spoon. Add the beer and stir until combined into a sticky dough. (Note: It is important that the beer is at room temp so that the yeast will rise, so if you’re just pulling that beer bottle out of the fridge, give it some time to come to room temp 😉
  3. Next, split the dough into halves and put one half into each loaf pan. Then cover the loaf pans with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place to rise for 1 ½ to 2 hours. (The dough should almost double in size.) Remove the plastic wrap and bake for 25 minutes.
  4. When the bread has finished baking, remove the loaf pans from the oven and set on a cooling rack for 15 minutes. Drizzle 1 tbsp of melted butter over the top of each loaf. Flip the bread out of the pan and set on a cooling rack to finish cooling.

NOTE: You can use any beer you like for this beer bread recipe. We chose an oatmeal stout made by a local brewery, and it was delish!

Easy Brown Sugar Honey Butter

While the bread cools, make the brown sugar honey butter by combining the ingredients into a small bowl and mixing with a fork until all ingredients are well incorporated.

How to serve Beer Bread

Are you gonna try this one? Just imagine serving it up on St. Patrick’s day with some corned beef and cabbage — so good. We also love it dunked into our family’s favorite stew or this soup.

The bread keeps well, so you can bake it the day before (or even a few days/weeks before if you like to freeze bread), slice, and serve with your meal. It’s great with or without the butter!

Hope you try our easy beer bread recipe and add it to your family’s meal rotation! xoxo
