Default beer bread

I got a beer bread mix as a present - it only says to add a bottle of beer - any suggestions? I'm thinking a dark beer would be good.

What if you used whiskey instead?

I've had beer bread that was good before. I've even made some beer bread that was good.

The plan here is not to try to find a good beer to use in the beer bread. When you have a good beer, the plan is to drink that beer while you are eating your beer bread (with a nice meaty chili). Beer bread is for getting rid of the random stuff in your fridge that you don't particularly like (perhaps someone brought it to your house and left the stragglers).

I currently have some Oranjeboom (I was tricked into buying at my local Trader Joe's) in my refrigerator. It would make excellent beer bread. Perhaps I will do this next week.

Don't waste your whiskey either.

Bread can be made out surprisingly weird stuff -- I've made beer bread and pickle bread before -- and come out good.

I've put beer into a few things, and think a dark beer that isn't too heavy would be good. Heineken dark is good in a lot of things.

Until you master a recipe I'd suggest not varying from it. Whiskey's alcohol content is pretty high, so you might kill off too much yeast, making the bread not rise properly, giving you a midget loaf.

Beer bread=good stuff. I'd go with something dark that's not too heavy. Honey Brown might be a good possibility.
