Daniel, it would go great with sauerkraut. Here's the recipe I used:
3 cups AP flour (I used 1 1/2 cups of both rye and AP flour)1 tablespoon baking powder1 teaspoon of salt1/4 cup of sugar1 12 oz. bottle of beer at room temperature1/4 cup of melted butter
Pre-heat oven to 375 Fahrenheit
Sift all the dry ingredients together. I cannot over emphasize the importance of sifting. Pour in the beer and mix, much like making a biscuit dough. Put dough into a greased loaf pan. Pour the melted library over the top (this gives it a good crust). Bake for 1 hour. Take out and let cool for about 15 minutes. Slice and serve.
sk8eycat and Joan. Thank you, thank you, and at the risk of repeating myself, Thank You!
I made beer bread for the first time this weekend, and it was fantastic. Instead of using all white flour, I substituted rye flour for 1/2 of what the recipe called for. Had that with a bowel of slow simmered ham and beans. Forget the cornbread. I'm going with beer bread from here on.

Thanks a bunch Chris. I'll try it.
Potato cake - for Spud
Probably a WWII recipe – no mention of kitchen machines at all.
600 grams of boiled potatoes, cooled down
200 grams of sugar
a cake tin and butter or margarine to grease it
Work the potatoes through a fine sieve. Mix in the eggs one by one and after that the sugar. Keep stirring until you get a creamy dough – the longer you stir the better. Grease the cake tin, fill it and bake the cake at 180°Celsius for an hour.
Beer bread. Never heard of it, so I looked it up. Sounds delicious and looks relatively easy to make. Think I'll make a loaf this weekend, and give it a try. I have a bottle of Sam Adams Boston Lager that needs to be used.
Thank you Joan and sk8eycat for the suggestion.
I have a recipe somewhere for "beer bread;" the texture and flavor seemed more like biscuits to me...maybe I used the wrong kind of beer. I'd like to try it again, using a beer with more flavor. I wonder how it would taste (and look) if I used a dark beer, such as Dos Equis (I used to LOVE that one!)
I love the taste of a good beer, but for the last 30 or 40 years I have not been able to drink anything with alcohol in it (instant migraine!), except a small glass of wine a couple of times a year. I love Merlot, and anything that Korbel makes...as long as it's not sweet.
I love just about anything with bubbles except diet sodas. Gack! Coca Cola makes a version with Splenda that isn't too bad, but I make it better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or just some heavy cream and a tiny splash of vanilla extract. I do the same with diet A&W. Fake Floats. Not bad at all.
I've been buying the frozen Multi-Grain loaves from Schwan's for more than a year now...each loaf is about the size of a 6" Subway. I usually just cut one in half while it's still hot, and slather both halves with butter. Die-VOOOON! I sometimes use them for open-face sandwiches with whatever I have in the fridge.
sk8eycat, your breads sound so good and healthy.
Have you ever used beer as leavening agent? When I lived in Alaska I had some sourdough bread that an old homesteader gave me. The first time I used it, I set it on the counter between the kitchen and dining room before I went to bed and by the next morning I had sourdough rising all over both floors. It was powerful stuff.
We also made bread from home brew beer but I can't remember how we did it. That was 1959-1961. I made home brew and it turned out the most terrible color of grey; it was delicious. One morning I had our bible study group over and while they were there my whole batch of home brew blew up in the basement. The chaplain told me that when bible-thumpers come around, your home brew will explode every time. Haven't made any since then.
I just put some whole grain (with sunflower seeds) "brown & serve" loaves in the oven...the aroma is WONderful. (I'm drooling)
Fresh-baked bread is one of the few things that actually tastes as good as it smells. If there really were a heaven, it would smell like a bakery IMNSHO.
No, I loved the wrecking ball comment. Made me laugh.
