Great! I followed the recipe exactly except for using half grated monterey jack and half extra sharp cheddar. Really tasty sliced thin and toasted.

I have never made beer bread before this was the first time, this bread is fantastic and easy since it's made without yeast, all of my family thought it was wonderful also, the only couple small changes was I used another clove of garlic and 1 more tablespoon of olive oil, I'm very happy to have found this wonderful recipe!
