Recipe: Whole Grain Beer Mustard

Story by Janina A. LarenasThese days you can find any number of novelty beer mustards at boutique grocers, but nothing will be as delicious as the one you make yourself with a favorite local brew. Choose a bright, flavorful beer like Yards Philadelphia Pale Ale or Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA and your mustard will taste like biting into a crisp summer cucumber.


Makes one 8 oz. jar

1/2 cup mustard seeds
1/2 cup of beer
1/4 tsp. of salt

  • In an 8 oz. jar, soak the mustard seeds and salt overnight in beer.
  • Blend the seeds and soaking liquid in a food processor, adding more beer as needed until most of the seeds are broken up and you have a smooth, spreadable paste.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to two months.
