Honey Beer Bread is a super simple quick bread. Just 5 ingredients that you likely have on hand! Despite the name, the beer flavor is incredibly mild. I bet you won’t even taste it! It’s a moist, yet dense, bread that is even better when slathered with extra butter and a drizzle of honey.
Ingredients You’ll Need – Only 5!
Salted Butter – extra for greasing the pan or you can use a baking spray.
Beer – I used Heineken, but use your favorite that you have on hand! The beer flavor is very mild in the bread.
Just 5 Easy Steps for this Honey Beer Bread!
Preheat the oven and grease your loaf pan. I prefer to use butter to grease (because, duh!), but you can also use a baking spray – like one that has flour in it. I try to avoid using normal cooking sprays when baking as it can cause the edges to over brown.
Mix together the dry ingredients – just flour and baking powder!
Stir in the honey and beer.
Pour batter into prepared loaf and dot with slices of butter.
Bake, slice, and enjoy!

I love enjoying this bread warm soon after baking, but it hold its moisture well and is still delicious a day or two later. It’s perfect along with breakfast, dinner, or just with a cup of coffee or tea. Butter and honey are my favorite toppings to spread on a slice. Print
Honey Beer Bread is a super simple quick bread. Just 5 ingredients! The beer flavor is very mild and the bread is dense, moist, and ready for a slather of butter and drizzle of honey.
baking spray or butter (to grease pan)
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt (optional – if your butter is unsalted)
1/4 cup honey
12 ounces beer (I used Heineken)
6 tablespoons salted butter (cut into ~1/2 tablespoon slices)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan with butter or a baking spray.
In a medium-large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder (salt if using). Pour in the beer and honey. Stir together using a spoon or rubber spatula until just combined. The dough may be slightly lumpy.
Pour the dough into the greased pan and top with the butter slices.
Bake for 35-40 minutes until the bread is lightly golden on top, feels set to the touch, and a toothpick comes out clean or with just a few crumbs.
Allow to cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before removing. Slice and serve with butter and honey.
