I am really excited to shared this beer bread with you. If you have never tasted beer bread, you don’t know what you are missing. It is sweet, buttery, moist and chewy. Every time I have this Guinness bread I am utterly amazed at how delicious it is. 

It is just incredible.

Now this bread is not with just any beer. This bread is made with Guinness. The classic Irish stout has a wonderful flavour and with every bite of this bread you can taste the Guinness. It is amazing because the taste of Guinness is present but not overpowering.

Not only do I love the flavour of this bread, but I also love how easy it is to make. There is no yeast in this bread, so there is no kneading required. There is also no need to let it rest and rise.

This bread uses baking powder and that along with the carbonation of the Guinness it gets all the lift it needs. You can get this bread in the oven within 10 minutes. It is that easy to make.

  • Does this bread only only work well with nitrogen beers? Would like to take a run at Kilkenny as it is sweeter!

    • not sure Jonathan. I guess there is only one way to find out! 🙂 If the beer is sweeter, you may want to reduce the brown sugar a bit – to maybe 1/2 cup or even 1/3. If you try it, let me know how it turns out.

  • Thank you for this tasty recipe! i just cut the first slice to sample it. i made it for my boyfriend (who loves guinness!) when he comes over for supper tonight. i also wanted to use it for sandwich bread but its to sweet for sanwiches for my liking but iam sure i will find other ways to devour it!
    When i make it agian i think i will use half the sugar, also i used half white and half whole wheat flour.
    thank you 🙂

    • Glad you like it. Yes, it is more of a sweet bread – similar to banana bread. If you are wanting a more traditional bread for sandwiches, cutting the sugar in half would probably do the trick.

  • Does the flour require sifting? Can I use white whole wheat flour instead? Hoping to make this tonight 🙂 with Clam Chowder!

    • I do not sift the flour, although it would not hurt if you do. Hope it turns out well for you!

  • I use a so I.ar recipe – uses a stick of me.ted butter poured over the top before you pit it in the oven – also, a cup or so of sharp cheddar makes it a wonderful snacking bread.

  • This recipe does yield a high rise loaf which is unlike the loaves I have made from other recipes. It also looks a bit more fluffier. I will need to try your version.
    Have a wonderful Easter, Steve. I know that creative wife of yours is making bunny ears or something for the kids while you are planing the food festivities!

  • You did a terrific job with the bread. It looks wonderful. A good crumb. I bet it tastes super. Great job!
