Basic Beer-Cheese Bread
Drizzling butter over top of this quick bread twice during baking gives it a wonderfully brown and crisp crust, and a great rich flavor, accentuating the cheese spread throughout the loaf. The bread is endlessly variable; by changing the type of beer, cheese, and extra ingredients you can make a whole new dish.
