Beer bread with pear and blue cheese

This loaf is so quick to prepare but looks like it comes from a bakery! We used pilsner with pears and blue cheese, but feel free to experiment with other taste combinations: apple and goat’s milk cheese with cider, feta with pan-fried baby marrow ribbons and lager...
