Ingredients:  
1 cup dark beer
1 Tbl. yeast
3 Tbl. brown sugar
3 - 3 1/2 cups bread flour
1 tsp. salt
1 egg, well beaten
3 Tbl. soft butter

Directions:
Heat beer to 115F. Pour into a bowl with yeast and stir to dissolve. Add sugar and about 1 1/2 cups flour. Beat for several minutes until mixture resembles pancake batter. Cover with plastic and allow to form a sponge for 30 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and knead in just enough flour so dough does not stick to your fingers. Knead for 10 minutes. Form into a loaf shape, place into a well-greased bread pot and allow to rise until it doubles in bulk. Place in a cold oven, set temperature to 425 and bake until loaf sounds hollow when thumped (about 45 minutes). Cool 10 minutes before removing from bread pot.
