I love the term ‘drinking my carbohydrates’. It is what we say when we know it is going to be a heavy weekend. Some men refer to beer drinking as “lunch in a bottle”. Which ever way you look at it, drinking beer is a high calorific endevour. I love artisan beers and in summer a really cold one is just what I need when the day is done. However, in my attempt to lose weight I have sworn off all beer! I have not yet sworn off bread however, and when I saw this recipe in my new recipe book I just had to give it a go. I mean, who can resist beer bread? And especially if you top it with some aged cheese.
