Happy St. Patrick's Day Beer Bread

Top of the morning to ya!!! Happy St. Patrick's Day Everyone!!!!
Well, tonight I am making Beer Bread for my husband! We actually received a little kit to make it back at Christmas and decided to try it tonight!

However, I found this similar recipe and thought I would share it with all of you who might be interested in making a little beer bread as well! We are watching The Fighter and P.S. I Love You to celebrate being Irish! Hope you have a fun evening as well!
Beer Bread Recipe

Prep Time: 3 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Serves: 6

3 cups flour (sifted)
3 teaspoons baking powder (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1 teaspoon salt (omit if using Self-Rising Flour)
1/4 cup sugar
1 (12 ounce) can of your favorite beer
1/2 cup melted butter (1/4 cup will do just fine)
Change Measurements: US Metric

1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2 Mix dry ingredients and beer.
3 Pour into a greased loaf pan.
4 Pour melted butter over mixture.
5 Bake 1 hour, remove from pan and cool for at least 15 minutes.
6 UPDATED NOTES: This recipe makes a very hearty bread with a crunchy, buttery crust. If you prefer a softer crust (like a traditional bread) mix the butter into the batter instead of pouring it over the top.
7 Sifting flour for bread recipes is a must-do. Most people just scoop the 1 cup measure in the flour canister and level it off. That compacts the flour and will turn your bread into a "hard biscuit" as some have described. That's because they aren't sifting their flour! If you do not have a sifter, use a spoon to spoon the flour into the 1 cup measure. Try it once the "correct" way and you will see an amazing difference in the end product.
8 The final result should be a thick, hearty and very tasteful bread, NOT A BRICK! ;).
9 Thank you all for the incredibly nice comments and those of you who left a bad review - learn
to sift sift SIFT! You will be amazed at the results you get.
