We absolutely love this bread! I use fresh green onions and fresh garlic. Any beer will do too! If you want to use 3 cups of self-rising flour it works just as well! Just omit the baking powder and the salt! Otherwise, follow as directed. I love to make this when I make a stew or something with gravy. I do hope you enjoy it!

This beer bread may replace cornbread when serving chili. This beer bread is super easy to make. Once baked, the top is crunchy, but inside is tender and buttery. The combination of garlic and onion complements the overall flavor. There's a slight sweetness in this beer bread. Serve warm, with a little bit of butter, alongside a bowl of soup or chili. Yum!

How To Make onion garlic beer bread

Test Kitchen Tips
We used a 12oz bottle of beer we had on hand and it worked perfectly. Every oven is differentm so we suggest starting to check the bread at 45 minutes. Ours was done at that point.
  • Dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
    This is very simple! Preheat the oven to 375. Add all dry ingredients to a mixing bowl.
  • Green onions and garlic were added to the flour.
    Add green onion and garlic and mix.
  • Slowly adding the beer.
    Slowly add the beer.
  • Mixing the ingredients together.
    Mix well.
  • Batter in a loaf pan with melted butter on top.
    Pour into a greased loaf pan. Pour butter over the top.
  • Beer bread baking in the oven.
    Bake for 45 - 50 minutes.
  • Beer bread cooling on a cooling rack.
    Once it has that yummy golden brown look take it out of the oven and let it sit 10 minutes to soak up the rest of the butter. Cool on a wire rack. Slice and enjoy! On a personal note, make this bread when no one is home otherwise it will be gone in minutes!! :)
