Hope Handsome Jack Ale Brown Soda Bread Recipe by Chef Peter Brennan

With this Soda Bread Recipe, I wanted to create something a bit different, Guinness bread although great had been done, and since we sell a lot of craft beer this was the obvious thing to do.

The ale come from a brewery in Howth, so in our believe of supporting local this too was an easy choice. We picked this one after some trails with the recipe, and the team agreed that Handsome Jack was the right ale to give that subtle back ground flavour. I particularly like textures in food, so we added pumpkin seeds and or sunflower seeds, but the choice is really yours.
