  2. Sift flour, salt and sugar into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Stir in flaxseed
  3. Slowly pour the Guinness into the flour mixture. Stir beer into dry ingredients and about half way add  in molasses and honey. Continue adding beer. Mix until no lumps and dry ingredients are incorporated. Do not over mix.
  4. Pour into loaf pan. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the deepest part of the loaf comes out clean.
