Beer and Cheese Biscuits

Super fluffy and cheesy drop biscuits, with the extra special ingredient...beer! You just can't go wrong with these for breakfast
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time25 mins
Total Time35 mins
Servings: 12 biscuits


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 8 tablespoons butter unsalted, cold
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup beer (light beers are best)


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the butter and use a fork or pastry blender to work it into the flour mixture until it resembles small pebbles. I usually give up and end up using my hands. Much easier :)
  • Add the cheddar and toss lightly. Add the buttermilk and beer and stir in with a wooden spoon just to combine. Don't over-mix! We want these light and fluffy.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measure, scoop the dough onto the baking sheet, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between biscuits.
  • Bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.
