There are a million recipes for beer bread (and a million mixes, too) but this is what I've found to work best for me. This tastes just like that famous mix and is a LOT cheaper! Because we don't drink much beer, I like to buy the single 24 oz cans that sell for around $1 at the grocery store, and double the recipe.
1 (12 fl oz) can or bottle beer
3 cups self-rising flour
3 cups all purpose flour + 3 tsp baking powder + 1 1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup white sugar
4 tbsp melted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the sugar and flour. Add beer and continue to mix. The dough will be sticky!
Pour into a greased 9x5 inch greased loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes. Halfway through baking, brush w/melted butter. Also brush with butter after removing from the oven after baking.
