We do love a fresh warm loaf of soda bread; complete with jam! Baking with beer is so easy as you’ll see with this recipe which uses our Handsome Jack IPA. It originally appeared on thetaste.ie and was created by Peter Brennan of Marqette, Dublin Airport. It’s super simple and super tasty. Happy baking!
