Secrets to Beer Bread?

I recently decided to start baking my own bread, and thought a good way to start out would be with beer bread. My first attempt wasn't exactly awful, but it turned out with the texture more of a banana bread: dense and rich. Any ideas as to how to bake a beer bread that's somewhat light? And while we're on the subject, anyone have any good recipes for a whole wheat/ whole grain beer bread, and which beers are good for different varieties?
