Intense Spicy Beer Mustard

There’s something about German cuisine that just makes it special. Whether you’re enjoying a pretzel and schnitzel over a light lager or enjoying bratwurst with friends, it’s hard to beat German food.

If you’ve ever wanted a spicy beer mustard to pair with sausages, you’ve likely wondered what a good recipe is. Well, wonder no longer! Today, we’ll show you how to make an intense spicy beer mustard!


Intense Spicy Beer Mustard

What You’ll Need

  • 2/3 cup of black mustard seeds
  • 2/3 cup of yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 1/3 cup of dry ground mustard
  • 6 tablespoons of honey
  • 3 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 2/3 cups of malt vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 1/2 cups of dark beer, such as Dunkel
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric

How to Make

Before we begin, we’ll need to have a base that’s been refrigerated overnight. Start with a medium-sized bowl and mix the yellow and black seeds together with the vinegar and half of the beer. Then, cover this with plastic wrap and let it cool overnight in the fridge.

The next day, you’ll start with a medium pan and combine half a cup of beer with brown sugar, honey, turmeric, salt and honey. Boil this mixture, then put it in a blender and allow it to cool off. Then, put the mustard seeds from last night and the ground mustard to the blender and puree the mix. Transfer the whole mix to a jar and allow it to refrigerate overnight before you serve it.

This mustard can be stored for about 3 months, so don’t be in a huge hurry to eat it all up! It pairs beautifully with sausage, especially German-style. As you’d expect, dark German beers like Dunkel or Doppelbock are excellent drink pairings. Many people also like to dip pretzels in the beer mustard or use it to top traditional hot dogs! Really, there’s no wrong way to enjoy it!
