Looking for a mustardy change of pace? This might be just the thing you're looking for. Kosciusko Beer Mustard is a spicy brown mustard which is 45% amber lager beer. It comes in a grey plastic spoonable "jar," and it's pretty damn awesome.
I was in Ocean State Job Lot at the beginning of the week trying to find mustard. Spcifically, I was trying to find Roland Dijon mustard, which is imported from France, absolutely delicious, and approximately 34 times better than Grey Poupon. Unfortunately, my local OSJL didn't have any Dijon mustard. But they did have Kosciusko, which is made by Plochman's. Lynnafred spotted it and tossed me a jar. "Have you ever heard of 'beer mustard?'" she asked.
Well, I hadn't, not until right then that is, but I knew I had to bring some home.
There is no mistaking this mustard for any other kind. The beer aroma is strong when the jar is opened, and a small taste confirms it: Plochman really does use beer to make it, and although they don't specify what brand, they're obviously using a real brew and not some crappy keg dregs. You can taste the hops and the malt with every bite, and it's truly unique. And truly delicious on almost every variety of tubesteak I've tried it on.
