Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, chives, and cheddar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined. Batter will be thick. Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan and bake about 45 minutes. (test after 40 minutes with a toothpick to be on the safe side)
Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 more minutes before serving.

Grease a loaf pan, really well. Sprinkle sea salt on the bottom.
Mix all of the above ingredient using just a spoon or spatula. Pour into loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour.
Let sit 2 or 3 minutes and pop out of pan.

Stir three cups self-rising flour, one third cup sugar and one 12 oz. can of beer into a big sticky lump. Grease a loaf pan with spray shortening or rub solid shortening, oil or butter around. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
Pour on as much of a stick of melted butter that will run over the top and down the sides without overflowing; bake 15 minutes longer. Let it sit in the pan for at least 10 minutes to soak up all the butter before serving.

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch baking pan.
2. In a bowl, mix the self-rising flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. Pour in the beer, and mix just until moistened. Transfer to the prepared baking pan. Top with the melted butter/margarine.
3. Bake 45 to 55 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
* I used 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus 3 tsp. baking powder, plus 1 1/2 tsp. salt. I also used a bottle of beer, rather than a can.

That's all but great add-ins are dried or fresh herbs, grated cheese, onion flakes, poppy seeds, caraway seeds, etc. I like fresh rosemary, grated garlic-from a jar, and grated cheeses, cheddar or jack.
Mix ingredients well, spray loaf pan and pour in batter. Bake at 375 degrees F until top is hard and a stick comes out dry.
People are so impressed with home-made bread!

Mix ingredients and put in 2 greased regular sized loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F., 45-50 minutes. Butter tops while hot to make crunchy.
**When making nut breads, banana breads and pumpkin breads put another loaf pan upside down on top of bread and bake it for 20 minutes. Then uncover. This will keep the loaf more level.**

How much Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese should you add to the beer bread mix for a variation?
We had some outstanding beer batter bread from the Czech Stop ('Check Stop') restaurant in West Texas. Anyone have a similar recipe?
