Frequently Asked Questions

Is your beer bread safe for kids or those who don’t drink?

YES! The alcohol cooks out so our beer bread is for all to enjoy! Try using soda rather than beer…actually, any carbonated beverage will work.

Can I use different beverages?

Absolutely! Using sodas, flavored water, apple juice, even wine, are all fine but may slightly change the taste/sweetness level of your finished bread. If you are using a non-carbonated drink, expect less rising.

What kind of beer is best in my beer bread?

You tell us! Every beer adds a different punch…we would love to hear from you about what you have tried and what your favorites are! We often make American Original with a light beer, but also love it with ales, cider beers, and lemonade-type beers. Try our Italian Herb with wine and be surprised by the depth of flavor. Be inspired & share your favorite creation with us!

Can I add ingredients to the beer bread mix?

Absolutely! On our site you will find recipes that do just that, but toss in your favorites (cheeses, olives, seasonings, bacon…) and see what you can create! Please share your ideas with us.

Do I have to butter the entire loaf?

For the most delicious bread, please do! But if you prefer you may leave it off or use your favorite oil.

How do I store my beer bread?

It is best served at room temperature. After baking and buttering, feel free to leave the bread out on the counter covered with a towel overnight (that’s how we do it!) …this will give you a nice buttery crust! Once cut, store in an airtight container.

How many loaves of bread does each package make?

Each package makes 1 loaf of bread.

Do I bake the bread differently at a high altitude?

Depending on the altitude the bread can take 5-10 minutes longer than the recommended baking time on the package. When in doubt, use the old toothpick trick or to help bake more evenly, bake in a 9×9 pan.

Can the beer bread be made in a bread machine?

No, the bread machine will over mix the bread, causing the bread to become very hard. The good news is our breads are even easier to prepare! Just pour, stir, and bake!

Can I make your dips with fat free or low fat ingredients?

Yes! For the best taste, use regular cream cheese, real mayo, sour cream, etc…but, you may use low-fat to save calories!

How long does a prepared dip mix last?

When sealed and refrigerated you can enjoy your dip mixes and cheese spreads for at least 7-10 days.

What size of mug should I use for my cake single?

Any standard size mug should do! We suggest using an 8-12oz microwave-safe mug.
