David Elder’s Shiner Beer Bread Recipe (2 Ways)



  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon iodized table salt

  • 1⁄4 cup granulated white sugar

  • 1 (12 ounces) Shiner Bock beer

  • 1⁄2 cup melted butter


  1. Preheat your oven, smoker or grill to 375°. Sift the flour into a large bowl and add all the dry ingredients. Pour the Shiner beer into the dry mix. Stir the beer into the dry mixture using a non-stick spatula. Add half of the melted butter and incorporate it into the batter.

  2. Pour the batter into a non-stick cake tin. Pour the rest of the butter on top of the dough. Place the dough in the smoker, oven or grill.

  3. At 375°, the dough will take about 1 hour to cook. At around 325°-350° (if using a smoker or wood-fired grill), bread can take up to 1.5 hours. Check the dough with a dry toothpick – if the dough sticks to the toothpick, it’s not ready.

  4. Once the bread is done, remove it and let it cool for 15-20 minutes. For a sweet dessert, add your favorite fruit, honey and a few slices of brie cheese. For a savory treat, add a slice of smoked ham, brie cheese, and a simple ham glaze (1 cup pineapple juice, 1 cup light brown sugar, ½ cup honey, 1 tsp cinnamon, ½ ground cloves.)

When enjoying Shiner Bock this holiday season, remember to drink responsibly and drive safely.
