Ask Real Beer

January 2000 Is there such a thing as mustard flavored beer? If so who makes it and where can I get it? Dan Kirby

Beer Dave answers Dan: A number of micros have partnered with some mustard makers to actually use their beers as a flavoring to the condiment. Sierra Nevada has been the most successful with this venture. Many home brewers use anything on the spice rack when designing their recipes. I have had everything from a spearmint ale to a Fireball Mead so I am sure that some one has brewed a mustard beer. I know of no commercial version of this style. So I suggest you enter the world of amateur brewing and brew your own mustard beer at home. Real Beer Page has volumes of homebrewing advice.
