Easy Beer Bread

This is easy and yummy. Great for an Irish fish 'n chips meal, or good old American wings and chili. The type of beer really does change the flavor in the bread. Here's a fun thought...does green beer make green bread? Hhhmmm.

3 cups Self-rising Flour
3 Tbs. sugar
1 (12oz.) Beer (any kind-we like darker ones like Killians Irish Red)
1/4 cup melted butter**

Mix flour, sugar and beer. Pour into greased 9x5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

**Melted butter can be poured on the top before you bake it, or half way through.


*More sugar will make a sweeter bread.
*Different beers make a different taste. If you want less of a beer flavor and sweeter bread, go with a lighter beer. Darker beers give a more distinct beer flavor.
*If you really want green bread, you could add food coloring for fun.
