I am wine and beer person, and love all kinds of beers; my favorites are Heineken, Asahi, Kirin, Shiner Bock and Dos Equis. And I also love various kinds of bread, and thus was planning for making beer bread for long time. While doing an after Christmas shopping, I noticed an Amber Harvest Mills Beer Bread Mix Gift Set with mix and loaf pan and I bought it. And I have also come across Shiner Bock buns recipe. So decided to make this shiner bock beer bread.
I have seen Shiner Bock beer bread and yeast rolls in the menu of a Dagar’s wedding catering service in the Lake Travis, Texas. I wanted try it immediately however I did not have Shiner Bock in hand. So I waited and finally when I got this beer bread mix I used Shiner Bock beer to make this bread. Added 2 tablespoon of melted butter for baking this bread, which is not mentioned in package, I was skeptical about the result in the mind I was thinking are I am wasting one bottle of beer. When the bread comes out the oven it was really nice smell. And when I tasted it is delicious. May be the Shiner Bock and butter did wonders here. I have seen a review where same mix used with another beer doesn’t taste good.
Shiner bock is brewed at Spoetzl brewery one of the oldest brewery in Texas,
I used one bottle 16 oz of shiner bock beer to make this bread instead of 12 oz mentioned in the package.
This bread is really delicious when it is comes of the oven; upon storing they will lose their taste. It is unique taste. If you are a beer lover you will love it.
