French’s Is Selling Mustard Beer Now And It’s Not As Gross As It Sounds

French’s Is Selling Mustard Beer Now And It’s Not As Gross As It Sounds French's

French’s Mustard is an American classic that goes great on hot dogs, hamburgers, soft pretzels, and even fries. But does it really belong in beer? The answer must be yes, because French’s has teamed up with Oskar Blues to create French’s Mustard Beer that sounds crazy but actually isn’t as gross as it sounds, I hope!

  1. Yes, this is really happening. I know 2020 has seemed like one long fever dream (or, you know, nightmare) but I can assure you that French’s Mustard Beer is a real drink that’s being made and sold to the general public.
  2. This isn’t the first time mustard has entered unchartered territory. It wasn’t that long ago that French’s delved into mustard ice cream, which is arguably even weirder than adding the condiment to beer, so while many will raise their eyebrows at this collab, it’s not entirely shocking.
  3. So what’s it like? The product description for Oskar Blues’ and French’s Mustard Beer is “tropical wheat beer brewed with French’s Mustard.” The beer is also infused with key lime, lemon, tangerine, and passion fruit, but it’s hard to overlook the yellow mustard in there, don’t you think?
  4. Yes, you can taste the mustard. However, Thrillist insists that French’s Mustard Beer isn’t the worst thing they’ve tasted and that while the mustard is vaguely noticeable, it’s more sour and citrusy than mustard-y, which is probably a good thing. They say it’s pretty drinkable and that you could finish a 6-pack probably without gagging.
  5. It’s available on August 1. If this seems like your ideal beverage, and I’m not sure why it would be, you can get it starting August 1st from Craftshack. You’ll also be able to pick it up from Oskar Blues taprooms in Boulder and Longmont, Colorado, and Brevard, North Carolina, if you happen to live anywhere near those locations.
