Heat the oven to 375°. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, basil, and mozzarella in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in the beer and mix just until combined. The batter will be thick and make sure all the batter is wet.
Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan, (or 3 mini-loaf pans) brush with the egg glaze, and bake until golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.
Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool 10 more minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
