Beer Bread with Nuts

What you need: 

3 cups self-rising flour
1 12-oz can of beer
2 tablespoons sugar

What you do: 

Mix ingredients and put into greased loaf pan. Dont overmix. Bake at 375 degrees for about 1 hour.
Options: You can cut down on the self-rising flour and add whole-wheat flour, bran flakes, rolled oats, nuts, and 1/2 cup raisins in any combination. For example, I use 1 cup white flour, 1 cup whole-wheat flour, 1/2 cup bran flakes and 1/2 cup rolled oats.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I tried this beer bread recipe since it is had even fewer ingredients than the one I usually follow.  It turned out swell.  I used whole wheat flour and added flax seeds instead of nuts.

I just want to mention that when you cook with beer, the alcohol cooks out and the flavor concentrates, so if you plan on making this, wait until you have some nice beer on hand--don't be like me and use that Natty Ice you found in the back of the fridge left over from a game of beer pong long forgotten.

awesome! i eliminated one cup of flour and replaced it with 1/2 cup of sun dried tomatoes and 1/2 cup of shredded zukes. also added some fresh sage, thyme, and minced garlic. highly recommended! i used new beliguim (vegan) mothership wit. made sandwiches with it -- my non-vegan, picky husband said it was the best he ever had. yay!

The majority of popular beers and spirtis do not use animal products in the production of their beers.  However the majority of wines do.  Here is a directory of breweries and distilleries which have been checked and often double-checked by many concerned beer-loving vegans:

You'll probably be glad to see your favorite beer is okay.  And if you love a local favorite that's not on the list, you'll find that most local breweries will quickly answer any inquiries, and that they usually take pride in their pure ingredients.
The fish bladder thing is pretty old school.  It's not cost-effective and so not many breweries do this anymore.

Beer bread has long been a valued tradition in my family, which contains mostly meat eaters. However, when I became a vegetarian my mother did her research, and discovered that all beers made by Anheuser-Busch and Heineken are vegan and vegetarian friendly, which is nice, as they are readily available in the states.

This was the fastest bread ever! i made it with tooheys extra dry (my favorite australian beer) and added oats. at first i was a little worried it would be a waste of a good beer but it came out very good, wholesome and a little bit sweet.

If your worried about the veganism of you beer and cant find vegan beer in your area MAKE YOUR OWN.  I have tried a recipe from Alton brown on the food network and made some fun beer.  Then used it this bread.

I also threw in some rosemarry chopped really really fine some garlic powder and some almosen sprinkle ("parm" cheese recipe from fettuccine no frado recipe on this site) into this bread also. 
Made it a little grainy but I don't mind the texture

YUM

All I happen to have on hand is some O'Douls... the whole alcohol free thing won't mess with this bread's rise, will it? Thanks all. (I'm new here by the way. Hi everyone!)

Hi Mizzou!  Another feline, cool!  I haven't tried this one, but I really don't think that alc/non-alc will cause a problem.  Sure hope it works out!
