The Beer That Started it All!

I experienced Karl Strauss for the first time when my girlfriend took me to the Carlsbad Restaurant. Red Trolley was my first sip of the San Diego craft beer scene, which soon became a giant chug. When I decided to learn everything I could about beer bread, I knew that Karl Strauss’ Red Trolley was the first beer I wanted to bake with.

Conclusion

This is the foundation of beer bread. You can build on top of that and experiment if you like. This a dense and lightly sweet beer bread that would go great with stews and soups.

      Slowly pour Karl Strauss Red Trolley into the dry ingredients. Mix Slowly. Continue mixing until the dough becomes thick. If you notice that the dough is really mushy and sticky, add a little more flour. Likewise, if you notice the dough too dry, add a splash more of beer (or a little water if you are out of beer).
