Before starting the Smoked Porter Cheesy Jalapeño bread, I received this tweet:
@kylevalenzuela Stone Levitaton Ale works well in bread. Or Stone Smoked Porter if you’re looking for something a little different!

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.

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.
