But sitting here drinking my morning cup of joe looking at one of my favorite sites I ran across this story about mulled beer. Mulled beer is hot spiced beer. It was all the rage between the 1500 and 1800’s. It was thought to be healtier than drinking cold. There is a good history of mulled beer at

Here is a recipe from wikihow and the full how to is here as well.

  • 12-16 oz decent-quality beer (the contents of your average bottle or can of beer)
  • 1 chicken egg, separated
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 pinch ground ginger, or 1 slice (sometimes called “coins”) of ginger 1/4″ long
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1-2 pinch(es) cinnamon, or 1″ section of a cinnamon stick
  • 1 pinch ground cloves or 2-5 whole cloves
  • 1 tablespoon honey
