How many left over beers do you have after Gameday? Heck, this is RBR, how many do you expect to have left over after National Signing Day? None? Well, save one and try this:

3 cups self-rising flour (sifted)
1/4 cup sugar
12 oz beer
1/2 cup melted butter
1) Sift flour into bowl
2) Add sugar
3) Add beer
4) Mix well
5) Pour into greased 9" x 5" loaf pan
6) Pour melted butter over top
7) Bake at 375 degrees for 60 minutes
8) Remove from oven and cool for 15 minutes
The kind of beer you use is up to you, the bread will take on the characteristics of whichever brew you decide to use. I have used everything from Guinness to Michelob Ultra with great results. My preference is Yuengling. Using left over beer that your game day guests leave in your fridge is a great way to experiment without having to buy an entire 6 pack.
If you like cheese bread, just add 1 cup of your favorite shredded cheese. Sharp cheddar or Monteray Jack works well. I also will add in a little minced garlic (or use garlic power), sauteed onion (or onion powder), black pepper, Cheyenne pepper or chopped jalapenos.
Pouring the butter over the top before baking will make the top crust nice and crunchy. If you don't like crunchy bread then just mix the butter in with everything else. If you like sweeter bread then up the sugar, or try brown sugar. Once I used a light beer, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla and then made French toast.
Let me know how it turns out, a'ight!
