Servings 4 people


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1.5 cups Sapporo Beer (you can use any 12 oz can of your favorite beer)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Butter your loaf pan.
  • In a bowl, sift the flour. Add the baking powder and sugar. Stir well to combine.
    Slowly pour in the beer, only 1/4 cup at a time, mixing well. Make sure it's well incorporated. The batter should look sticky and thick.

  • Bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or when the top is golden brown. You may need more time than this, depending on how fast your oven cooks. (It took our bread 40 minutes.)
  • When you remove the bread from the oven, there will be butter bubbling from the top and sides. Let the bread rest for 15 minutes, and the butter will soak into the bread.
