Beer Biscuits - The Southern Lady Cooks

This recipe for Beer Biscuits is fun to make and the yeast in the beer makes the biscuits rise up. I cut these out with a square cookie cutter. They are light and fluffy and would be wonderful for a brunch with country ham or serve them with your favorite jams and jellies. They are great for breakfast or even with a meal.

Beer biscuits simple ingredients:

All-purpose flour

Baking powder

Baking soda



Butter, melted

Servings 4 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup beer


  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt until well mixed. Add melted butter and beer. Mix together with a spoon and turn out on a floured surface.
  • I just patted the dough out with my hands but you could roll it out. Cut out biscuits. You can use whatever size cutter you like.
  • Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place biscuits on sheet touching each other. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
  • Remove and brush tops with the saved tablespoon of melted butter and place under broiler for a few minutes.
  • I got 15 biscuits with the small square cutter.
  • Using a regular size biscuit cutter you would probably get around 8 to 10

  1. Hello! I made the recipe as it is and it was really loose. I had to add an additional 1/2c flour before I could turn it out. They turned out perfectly once the extra flour was added. Absolutely delicious.
