Brown Sugar Beer Glazed Ham

Brown Sugar Beer Glazed Ham


7-8 pound smoked ham

12 ounces Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 tablespoons stone ground mustard

1 tablespoon cornstarch

2 teaspoons fine sea salt

2 teaspoons allspice

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon Chinese five spice

1/2 teaspoon black pepper



Preheat your oven to 350 degrees  and line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place an oven-safe oven rack on top if you wish.

Place the ham on the rack and score a grid-like pattern, cutting down about 1/2 inch.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the Samuel Adams Rebel Juiced IPA, brown sugar, maple syrup, mustard, cornstarch, salt, allspice, cayenne pepper, Chinese five spice and black pepper. Taking about 1/3 of the mixture, brush the entire ham generously.

Place the ham in the oven, uncovered and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and brush another 1/3 of the glaze on top and place back in the oven. Bake for an additional hour or until the top is brown and crisp. Remove from heat.

In a small saucepan, add the remaining 1/3 of the glaze. Heat over medium-low heat until the glaze is thick. Remove from heat and pour into a serving bowl.

Slice the ham to your liking and serve warm with glaze.
