We’re starting our beer bread journey with Church Street’s Red Rye Lager. When we tasted this, it just screamed rye bread. No, seriously it did. It just has that rye taste to it. Rye is one of my favorite types of bread, but even those that don’t enjoyed this loaf. It’s a light rye, not a solid pumpernickel. This bread has a full bodied tang.
It is beyond worth the trouble and time. The loaf (what’s left of it) is still moist after days of sitting loosely wrapped on the counter. For breakfast, it’s the perfect choice as this dense bread made with beer will leave you full. This bread toasted completely defeats any other.
