To make this Spicy Beer Mustard, you’ll need a few simple ingredients that you may already have in your pantry: brown mustard seeds, yellow mustard seeds, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and of course, your favorite beer. The combination of ingredients is what makes this mustard truly unique. Brown mustard seeds are typically spicier and more pungent than their yellow counterparts, while the beer adds depth and bitterness to the flavor profile.

One of the best things about this recipe is that it’s fully customizable to your personal taste preferences. You can adjust the amount of honey or beer to make it sweeter or more bitter, and you can add additional spices like garlic powder or cayenne pepper to make it even spicier.

The process for making Spicy Beer Mustard is simple and straightforward. You’ll start by soaking the mustard seeds in beer and vinegar for at least 16 hours to soften them up. Then, you’ll blend the soaked seeds with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor or blender until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. Finally, you’ll transfer the mixture to a sterilized jar and let it sit in the fridge for a few days to allow the flavors to meld together.

Overall, this Spicy Beer Mustard recipe is a great way to add some flavor and kick to your condiment collection. Whether you’re slathering it on a sandwich or using it as a dip for pretzels, this mustard is sure to become a staple in your kitchen.

Spicy Beer Mustard – this easy-to-make mustard recipe is fantastic on sandwiches and hot dogs, but also in potato salad, or mixed into salad dressings and marinades. Essentially, the condiment we call mustard, also called “prepared mustard,” is just the seeds of the mustard plant plus a liquid, such as water or beer. Adding vinegar or another acid helps preserves the spiciness over time.
