Mm... beer

I did a little baking the other day. I decided to use the box of Larry the Cable Guy Beer Bread that was sitting in my cabinet, and a bottle of Kirin Ichiban beer and make beer bread.

Out of all the alcohol I've made with this bread, I think the Kirin Ichiban adds a solid flavor to the mix when eaten within 24 hours (and man, can you easily eat it in a day).

I've tried Shock Top Lemon Shandy, and it was okay, but not "gotta get me more of this!" good. Blue Moon was tasty, as well as Sam Adams. In a way, you can get technical and say it's "alcohol abuse" by baking it in bread, but it's a good way to get rid of the bottles that are weeks away from being skunked.

The bread makes a good party favor, as everyone ends up wanting another piece. Mix your favorite brand in it, pair it on chili night (game night, perhaps?) and you've got yourself something to always whip up at last minute. It only takes 55 minutes in the oven, so it's not a whole day wasted.

Pictures or it didn't happen:
