  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • cup melted unsalted butter divided
  • 14 ounces beer a nice flavorful
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced thyme
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced sage
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper


  • 3 tablespoons pepita seeds
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease the loaf pan and set aside.
  • Place flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk together.
  • Create a small well in the center of the flour mixture and add beer, 6 tablespoons melted butter, 1 cup cheese, herbs, and black pepper. Stir together until the dough just comes together. Do not over mix! (if there are small flour pockets, gently stir them away; a couple remaining flour pockets are okay).
  • In a small mixing bowl combine all topping ingredients and toss together.
  • Pour mixture into a prepared loaf pan. Pour remaining butter over top, sprinkle remaining cheese and topping mixture over top of bread and bake for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the loaf.
  • Remove loaf from pan and allow it to cool until just warm to the touch (about 1 hour and 30 minutes), before slicing.
  • Slice and serve with whipped butter or a drizzle of honey.


  • *Makes 1 (9”x 5”) loaf
  • *To Freeze: Cool loaf completely, before tightly wrapping in plastic wrap and freezing for up to 2 months.
