Dutch Oven Beer Bread

Beloved of outdoor bakers everywhere, beer bread is moist, nicely dense, and chewy. It is perfect for toast and sandwiches. As a bonus, it is really easy to make.

This bread is amazing and if you don’t care for beer you could always use plain seltzer water instead. However, the yeast in the beer helps to give the bread structure and flavor. 

This bread is perfect for camping. You don’t need to worry about keeping yeast alive, you just need a bottle of beer. It is truly a great option for fresh bread in the outdoors with minimal hassel.
