Three Cheese and Beer Quick Bread


Hubby plays "old man volleyball". Every week, pre-game, all the men folk gather round the picnic table to eat and drink and talk manly things.
This has been going on for 20+ years, and as cute as I think it means I need to make an extra something during the week for him to bring.

As we are a small family, two loaves are a bit much. Normally I would freeze some, but I recently did a bunch of freezer cooking...and had no room to spare.

Lightbulb flashes!

I cut up an entire loaf and sent it to volleyball with my grown man-child.
From what I understand, it was a HIT!

There was none left when he came home.
So very glad I kept some for us!

6 ½ Cups all purpose flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tsp salt
2 Tsp dry mustard
1 Tbsp dried Italian herbs
1 ½ Cups sour cream
2 Cups beer (room temperature)
½ Cup tomato juice
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
2 Eggs (beaten)
6 oz Shredded gruyere cheese
1 Cup parmesan cheese
6 oz Shredded white cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Grease two loaf pans
3. In large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, dried mustard, and Italian herbs
4. Remove ½ cup gruyere and ¼ cup parmesan, set aside
5. Add remaining cheeses to flour mixture. Mix with fingers so all cheese is coated.
6. In a separate bowl, whisk together the beer, sour cream, tomato juice, eggs, and worcestershire
7. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients. Stir until just mixed.
8. Divide batter between the two pans.
9. Sprinkle top of each loaf with reserved cheese
10. Bake for 50-55 minutes

  1. Interesting. I've never seen tomato juice in beer bread before. Does it taste tomato-like or does that just enhance the cheese taste? We really like beer bread!

    1. It just enhances the flavor! You don't taste it at all, which keeps it less "pizza" tasting :)

  2. This beer bread looks really good! I like the idea of white cheddar cheese in it too. Found you on Kathe B's party. Thanks for the recipe!
