This bread is delightfully moist, slightly sweet, full of cheddar cheese and loaded with flavor!  If I don't keep an eye on it, half it will be gone before it makes it to the table.

If you have it, use a dark beer like a stout.  The flavor of the dark beer gives the bread a richer taste.  If you don't have a dark beer, any type of beer can be substituted with great results!  The beauty of this recipe is that you can easily adapt it based on what you have.
