- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated (about 1 cup)
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 1/4 cups light-bodied beer
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, divided
Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl combine the flour, cheese, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper. Stir in the beer and 4 tablespoons of the butter. Be careful not to overmix.
Place the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the surface. Brush lightly with the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a few crumbs attached, 40 to 45 minutes, rotating the loaf pan halfway through baking.
Let the loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning the loaf out onto a wire rack to cool for 1 hour before serving.
The earliest known chemical evidence of barley beer dates to circa 3500–3100 BC from the site of Godin Tepe in the Zagros Mountains of western Iran.-

Love the recipe!! Would love to try this.
Yum! I just made this delicious 🙂
This is a definite must try! Love the addition of the gruyere in this!
I’ve been making beer bread since college (which was eons ago). Never made it with cheese, so I wiil have to try it. I’ve also used the batter to make mini “corn dog” like bites. There are a bunch of recipes for mini cornbread corn dogs. Same concept, just used beer bread. My 10 year old loved them!!!!!
This looks amazing.
What are your thoughts on using cheddar instead of gruyere? (I have a ton of cheddar at home)
I love beer bread…adding cheese is, well, over the top wonderful! I saw this on FoodGawker; wonder if you would want to add it to our Bread group…this month the theme is cheese so of course you’ve hit it right on!

I love that you used gruyere in this! beer bread is simply awesome because of how easy it is to make!
Gruyere is my all time fave, so much depth of flavor. Looks like a winner recipe.
