shiner bock beer bread

I think it is Blue Baker in College Station that makes Shiner Bock Beer Bread. When we had our friends, Rex and Kylee, over to watch the Ags one football game day, we ended up with extra Shiner. So I set out to recreate Blue Baker's bread. I didn't have yeast, sorry not that much of a little baker. But I looked up the way to mix baking powder or soda with all-purpose flour to make self-rising flour, which is what the recipes I found called for. This was AWESOME when it came out of the oven because the outside was so crispy. It was still great once cooled and days later and I made a little butter, honey, cinnamon mix to spread on it.

Shiner Bock Beer Bread
3 c. all purpose flour
4 & 3/4 t. baking powder
1 & 3/4 t. salt
heaping 1/3 c. brown sugar
12 fl. oz. Shiner beer
1/4 c. butter, melted
Heat oven to 375. Lightly grease a 9x5 in baking dish. Mix dry ingredients very well. Add beer and mix just until moistened. Pour into baking dish and top with melted butter. Bake 45 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

The day after making this, I took it to Logan after he had surgery. He liked it -of course he did, it's bread. And Taylor liked it too even though he refused to eat more than a tiny bite when it was fresh and wonderful out of the oven, because he "wasn't hungry" (translation for skeptical of the new experiment....) Hallie liked it too! but maybe she was just being nice to me. I was proud of this because I felt like I was performing a chemistry experiment. I probably will never try it with self-rising flour because this worked and was yummy.
