I usually use a substitute when it comes to using alcohol in my cooking. You can use 7-up but it makes your bread more dense. I think the yeast in the beer makes the bread better. The alcohol does cook out(you can check it out for yourself) but its just a personal preference. This bread is awesome just the way it is but if you want a little more BANG to it try adding sharp cheddar instead of just cheddar and add some jalapenos YUUUUUM!!!!
