<span style=”display:none;” itemprop=”description”>This herby beer bread recipe uses dark beer and a wonderful herb blend to give it a nutty texture. It can also be made with a soft drink, like root beer, cola or lemon-lime soda.</span>

</p>
<p>I use a basic beer bread recipe and add my own herb blend. You can make this with a soft drink, like root beer, cola or lemon-lime soda, but the flavor will not be as complex and yeasty as when you use a dark beer. The alcohol cooks out as the bread bakes. The lavender flowers give the bread a nutty texture.</p>
