The Jar House

Who are we? 

The Jar House started from our passion for travel, visiting distilleries & breweries and a love of craft beer & good bakes! We always bring home a local brew from our adventures to bake with, our quest to find the best ‘beer brewed breads’ inspired us to create our quick and easy bread baking mixes which work with any beer, stout, cider or soda water. Whichever you choose they all make great tasting bread.

We are a family business based in the Yorkshire coastal town of Saltburn by the Sea in North Yorkshire, and very proud of our unique British Beer Bread Company. In 2020 and 2021 we were delighted to win Great Taste Awards for our Beer Breads! A fantastic accolade and stamp of approval from the judges at The Guild of Fine Food for ease of making product, loaf texture and great taste! All of our products are hand made and all natural. We support British farming, Fair-trade products, certified sustainable farming and packaging that’s environmentally friendly and ethically produced.

As part of the fantastic ‘Ecologi’ teams planet saving, carbon reduction and sustainability projects we are a climate positive workforce, off setting our carbon footprint by planting trees, abroad and in reforestation in the UK in Scotland, we felt it was important to replace our paper and hamper usage from the production of our kits and reduce our carbon footprint as a business. The Jar House has planted over two hundred trees so far!

Our Beer Bread

We Brit’s are well known for our passion for baking and our love of beer! We made it easy to combine these two traditions with our beer brewed bread mixes in fantastic flavours. Beer and Bread in one bake, how good is that! Even better they are simple to make and we only use all natural ingredients in our mixes. Fill your home with the irresistible aroma of freshly baking beer bread that taste’s so good.

Make your own beer bread with our easy to follow mix. Just pop the mix in a bowl, pour in beer, mix and bake. It’s that simple! Adding the frothy beer to the mix adds a perfect airy rise and a subtle beery, malty, hoppy flavour to the bread, pouring melted butter over gives a delicious crusty top, there’s no kneading or proving required.  Easy bread baking, with fantastic results.

Best served sliced with lashings of butter, extra tasty toasted and perfect with chutney and cheese in a ploughman’s lunch. Dip in soups and casseroles, curries or accompanying salads, cheese boards, sandwiches.. the list is endless.. You can use our kits in a loaf tin, pot loaf, BBQ, for flat bread, pizza base, cider bread, you can add cheese and other ingredients to create your own beer flavoured loaf or it’s delicious simply baked with the beer! You can use a light beer for a subtle flavour or if your a beer lover then add any full flavour beer you like, IPA will give you a hoppy malty taste, you can even use cider for an apple flavour, or if your not a beer drinker add soda water.
