Here we have a White, and a Brown, Beer bread
Tried and tested.
If using a mixer best to use normal whisks rather than the dough hook as it gets more air into the mix.
Easy Beer Bread
1 hour 10 min
Beer bread is a quick bread - the taste will vary depending on what type of beer you use.

3 tablespoons caster sugar
330ml (12 fl oz) beer can or bottle – but a live beer is best
Prep:10min › Cook:1hr › Ready in:1hr10min
In a large bowl, mix together the sugar and flour. Add beer and continue to mix, first using a wooden spoon, then your hands. Batter will be sticky. Pour into a 23x12cm (9x5 in) greased loaf tin.
Bake at 180 C / Gas mark 4 for 50 for 60 minutes. The top will be crunchy, and the insides will be soft.
