Before starting the Smoked Porter Cheesy Jalapeño bread, I received this tweet:


I have had this beer in my presence many times since that tweet, however, I found myself drinking the beer more than baking the brew.

The beer: Stone Levitation Ale. The bread: Irish Soda Bread.

Conclusion

This did not have the somewhat bland and simple flavors of soda bread. It tasted very much like a Levitation Ale socked Russian rye bread. Most of the breads I have created contain a subtle flavor of the beer. This, however, was packed full of Stone goodness. If you are a really big fan of Levitation ale then you will love this bread.

I recommend slicing, toasting, and smothering it with some Kerry Gold butter and enjoying for breakfast or for a snack.

    I am a developer, cooking fanatic, and craft beer lover. However, lacking in baking skills, I decided to try making beer bread. Baking Brew is dedicated to cooking and baking with one main ingredient in mind. Craft Beer!

    It's been said that "Gravity Sucks." Simple enough. Well, we at Stone have identified gravitational forces in the beer world. And we have come to the conclusion that they, well, see above. So we avoid these less-than-desirable gravitational forces. We avoid dumbed-down flavor profiles and the vigorous pursuit of the lowest common denominator. We avoid big dollar marketing...
