If only everything in life were this simple. Open bag. Pour beer. Get bread. Locally made Just Add Beer Bread mixes are trying to do just that, making it beautifully simple for you to get bread on the table (you don’t even need a bread pan). Add your choice of a 12-ounce bottle of beer to the mix, do a quick stir, and plop the dough ball onto a cookie sheet. The loaf that comes out is rustic and craggy, but sweetly scented, dense, and worth a good schmeer of butter or dip into soup. There are two kinds, one basic and one cocoa, with which to play. The kind of beer you choose will definitely affect the flavor, and that’s half the fun. Try these recommendations:
BASIC + Indeed L.S.D. Honey Ale
(or) Boom Island Witness
COCOA + Dangerous Man Milk Stout
(or) Surly Coffee Bender
You can find JABB mixes at World Market, Local D’Lish, or online.
