Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Adjust oven rack to lower middle position. Grease one (1) 9x5-inch loaf pan (grease bottom only of regular loaf pan or grease and flour bottom and sides on a non-stick loaf pan).
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; stir until blended.
Slowly pour in the beer or ale and stir until you have a sticky dough.
Spoon dough into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake approximately 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. NOTE: Be sure and poke the toothpick already to the center of the loaf. A good check is to use an instant digital thermometer to test your bread. The temperature of the bread should be at 200 degrees F. when done.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan.
Makes 1 loaf.
* You can also use non-alcoholic beer, if you wish.
