  • “This was very good just as is, but I love green olives wit pimentos so much I made another one with both types of olives it was real pretty add good too.”

  • “A nice beer bread.I used leftover olives from Recipe #305489, so they had already marinated in garlic and oregano which made for a great addition.I also added about a tsp of dried minced onion, but it was undetectable in the final product.Hubby really liked this and went back for seconds!We dipped it in high quality olive oil with black pepper.Made for PHOTO TAG.”

  • “Wonderful!I loved this variation on the standard beer bread recipe. I love the simplicity of beer bread, but most recipes are just too sweet. This bread is savory and delicious.This bread will be made often in my house!”

  • “Sandi, This was so very good as written, thanks! I made it for my wineo’s (women in need of each other) dinner last night. Everyone raved. Next time I will try adding rosemary and dusting with sea salt.”

  • “This was very tasty! I actually liked it better after it had completely cooled (I usually like bread when it’s still warm). The dough was slightly too bitter for me, maybe because of the type of beer I used (Stella Artois, a lager). This will be easily remedied next time; I think I’ll replace half of the beer with milk. I didn’t use a loaf pan, I just formed a ball on a cookie sheet. This would also make good drop biscuits. Thanks for posting!”
