For some reason, I don’t make beer bread very often and for the life of me, can’t answer why.  It’s probably one of the easiest bread recipes there is.  The main ingredients are: flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and beer.

If you’re worrying that the flavor of sage might be too strong, don’t be.  The sage flavor is extremely subtle. It’s lovely, really.

I always use a dark amber beer when I make beer bread because of the deep, rich taste it provides.  A lighter beer won’t give as much flavor.  Although I didn’t use it, a pumpkin ale might be nice to try.

This bread isn’t sweet as most pumpkin breads tend to be.  It’s more of a savory bread that would go well with with a bowl of soup or chili and is especially nice to set out on a table to enjoy before a meal.
