Prep Time: 15 minutes | Yield: 12

Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp fresh rosemarry, chopped
  • 3/4 cup feta, cumbled 
  • 12 ounces beer
  • Up to 1/4 cup of water (if the dough is too dry)

  • Directions

    1. To make these beer biscuits with rosemary and feta, reheat oven to 375°F.
    2. Mix the dry ingredients well, add your spices and cheese (optional), then pour in the American lager and mix it all together.
    3. If the dough seems very dry, slowly add up to 1/4 cup of water, until all of the flour is incorporated. Try not to over mix.
    4. Pour the dough into a lightly greased loaf pan or divide it into a muffin tin. Bake until golden brown, about 45 minutes for bread or 25 minutes for biscuits.
    5. The recipe makes one loaf of bread or 12 good-sized biscuits. I’m partial to biscuits because there’s more surface area for crust.
    6. Variations: Use different types of beer. You can also add spices, cheese and/or nuts to change the flavor and texture of the beer bread.

    Beer Braised Pork Belly with California Common

    In the Smylie Brothers kitchen we primarily use our flagship beers in our dishes. We use the Cali common in the braising liquid for the pork belly in addition to chicken stock, then after the bellies are tender we add more beer and thicken the liquid to create a rich gravy. As we make everything from scratch, we treat our raw ingredients with a lot of care and respect. The pork belly that we get from George Rasmussen at Swan Creek Farm in Colon, Michigan, is a good example of this. George takes our spent grain from the brewing process back to feed his pigs and we buy that pork from him.
