The beer flavor really comes through in this savory loaf. For an added gift, give the mix in a basket alongside the bottle of beer needed to prepare the recipe. —Redawna Kalynchuk, Sexsmith, Alberta

"This bread is moist and flavorful, as well as simple to make. I wouldn't change a thing. I made it go with Cheeseburger soup for supper, and they went really well together."
