Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease a loaf pan or line with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda and salt (when measuring the flours, lightly spoon into cups). Stir in additions, if desired.

Add beer and stir just until the mixture is moistened. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool in the pan on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes before unmolding to cool completely on the rack.
