This bread is so flavorful and delicious. It’s the perfect hearty bread to serve along side a bowl of soup or a salad (or both)! I used a blonde ale for this batch, but you could use different types of beer to achieve variations on this one recipe. Personally, I think an IPA, Stout, or Pumpkin Ale would also be really good at this time of year!
I found this recipe on the blog for in.gredients. They are an Austin-based neighborhood microgrocer selling local food with pure ingredients, package-free (Amazing concept, amazing store!). The recipe was part of their daily recipe feature that they do. The original recipe comes from Dine and Dish. Both are really great resources and sites!
