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.
