Cheddar Chile Beer Bread
The bread has a chewy crust and a soft, tender, incredibly moist but dense crumb. The flavor is lightly reminiscent of beer, with little melted pockets of Cheddar and Green Chiles dotted throughout. The crust is loaded like an 'everything' bagel with poppy, caraway and sesame seeds, along with a light sprinkle of sea salt. It added an extra dimension of flavor and enhanced the already delicious crust even further. I'm quite sure it would be just fine without the topping and a light scatter of cheese instead. And without the Green Chiles or with Jalapenos in their place.
