    Had some Lagunita's Brown Shugga and SN Celebration on hand and decided to get experimental and mix a little bit of each. The result is a pretty smooth-drinking hoppy ale but I noticed hints of mustard, especially in the initial aroma and a little in the taste. I was a little surprised/confused by this but it wasn't bad. I enjoyed it. Maybe I'm just crazy but I thought this was an interesting experience.

    I have these on hand for a Christmas party. Depending on how many I have I might repeat your experiment.

    That sounds like a base for a kickass dipping sauce.

    I might take your discovery and incorporate it into some IPA pickles.

    Half and half those two beers
    Ground mustard seed
    Ground turmeric
    Cracked black pepper (to taste, if desired)
    Brown sugar (and/or molasses)
    Habenero powder

    Or maybe a glaze for pork steaks or baked ham

    Sounds like something you'd make in Doodle God.

    Just another vessel for pretzels!

    I too have both on hand and may need to experiment to see if the combination yields similar tasting results. (I'm not much of a beer 'mixologist', but I have enough to give it a go so why not?).

    Also, reminds me of these:

    I have yet to meet a mustard I didn't like, so I may have to try this as well. Coincidentally enough, these were the two cases of beer I was torn between purchasing last night.

    I have never mixed beer, but I once drank a Sierra Nevada Tumbler directly after a Terrapin Hopsecutioner, and somehow my disrupted palate could taste a little bacon in it.

    Now you'll need to go back and purchase the one you didn't pick last night!

    Bring in the Weiss Wurst and pretzelen and you have yourself a new Bavarian tradition.

    Throw in some Abita Christmas Ale and you'll have mustard, onions, and garlic.

    My girlfriend forgot about a 6-pack of Hopslam she bought last year (yeah, I don't know either; don't ask). After several months we discovered it but it did not hold up well, so after leaving it sit for almost a year since we didn't have the heart to throw it out, we made mustard with it. I'd imagine the overall effect isn't too far off from a Celebration/Brown Shugga' mustard.

    Maybe cook a few of those Applegate stadium dogs in that sublime liquid
    Dirty water dogs on the street in NYC. Exception, I'd drink the water

    A couple of mustard 'dogs and a beer is a reminder of everything that is right, good and holy about this world.

    I hear Lagunitas brewery is releasing their limited edition holiday Barrel Aged Brown Shugga Celebration mustard on Christmas Eve. What time do you think I have to be in line to not get shut out. I hear there is going to be a 2 bottle limit and the price is 30. Anyone out there want to mule for me.

    I would if I wasn't already in line. I did bring a jar of last years mustard to share, though.

    I drank a Lagunitas Censored after a DFH World Wide Stout once & it tasted like tomato soup.
