Check my hub: http://nboyd2906.hubpages.com/hub/Beer-Bread-Recip... It's very easy to mix, contains simple ingredients, and takes about an hour to bake. I'll be baking 2 loaves for a holiday party tomorrow along with spinach/artichokoe dip. Any beer will work, but I've found that a really flavorful lager works best. Last time I used Killian's red and got a lot of compliments on how tasty and moist it was. Good luck!
