Whole Grain Mustard with IPA

Also in print this month is my recipe for making beer mustard! Check it out online with the GRID digital edition, or read below:

These days you can find any number of novelty beer mustards at boutique grocers, but nothing will be as delicious or as the one you make yourself with a local beer. Choosing a bright flavorful beer like Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale or Dogfishhead 120 Minute IPA will make your mustard taste like biting into a crisp summer cucumber, and there is no better way to take a break from beer than with more beer!

Ingredients (Makes 1 8oz Jar):

  • ½ cup mustard seeds
  • ½ cup of beer
  • ¼ cup of salt


  • in an 8oz jar soak the mustard seeds overnight in beer
  • blend the seeds in a food processor adding more beer as needed until most of the seeds are broken up and you have a smooth spreadable paste
  • keep refrigerated for up to 2 months
