Cheese and wine, strawberries and champagne, Sonny and Cher – great things happen when you find the perfect match. Olive and rosemary is a timeless flavour combination, so when it came time to expand the Barrett’s Ridge beer bread range, this particular flavour mix immediately made the cut, so to speak.

The versatility of  Barrett’s Ridge Olive and Rosemary means that you can use any lager of your choice. The subtle olive flavour sits really well with the malt in the lager, while the rosemary breaks the salty combination with a nice herby edge.

Oxtail stew. There’s something oh-so-satisfying about letting a crusty piece of Barret’s Ridge beer bread soak up the moreish lava of oxtail stew. It’s a match made in heaven, just like olive and rosemary.

Make sure you brush your loaf with melted butter before it goes into the oven. It makes for an extra crispy crust and a crowd begging for seconds.

And for something extra special, use this mix to make this Plumb, Chilli & Feta Wreath Bread
