I recently drank Stone's "Punishment" which was brewed with jalapeños! Having homebrewed with jalapeños from my garden for years I was super excited. Are there other breweries that have started experimenting with spicing their beers this way?

    In the UK there is a long tradition of spicing beer with cinnamon and recently other spices have been tried Modha ales make a cardamom spiced beer. – user23614 Jan 13 '16 at 11:32

I recently had their "Crime" and loved it. Here are some other beers brewed with Jalapenos, but not a whole lot from major breweries like Stone.

Rogue - Chipotle Ale

"smoked jalapeno peppers"

Twisted Pine - Ghost Face Killah

"serrano, jalapeno, habanero, fresno, anaheim" (notoriously hot) enter image description here

Alaskan - Jalapeno Imperial IPA

enter image description here

Horseheads - Hot-Jala-Heim

"jalapenos and anaheim"

enter image description here

No Label - Don Jalapeno

"this beer is brewed with 60lbs of jalapenos. 30 lbs raw and 30lbs roasted (seeds included)"

enter image description here

Hot Box - Imperial Smoked Pepper Porter

"smoked poblano & jalapeno peppers"

  • BadWolf brewing in Manassas Virginia has a jalapeño IPA. – Preston Jan 14 '16 at 21:57
  • If you can find a label online, by all means feel free to post a separate answer :-) – Andrew Cheong Jan 14 '16 at 22:13
  • Country Boy has a jalapeño porter – warren Jan 15 '16 at 20:24

    Just as a bit of commentary, I have tried Ghost Face Killah on two occasions, and immediately regretted it both times. Unlike many other chili beers that I have had, this one destroyed my palette almost immediately. I consider it something of a "dare" beer, or a last beer of the night. – object88 Feb 2 '16 at 3:16

This is not a jalapeno beer, but along the same lines. Ballast Pointe brewery out of San Diego, CA makes what they call a Habanero Sculpin IPA. It is delicious and you can find it all the way over here on the east coast in NC. It has a very nice kick to it- it's great with a steak or something kind of heavy, but not so great for beer pong as the habanero really does have a bite to it. enter image description here

Again, not a jalapeno beer, but a great one nonetheless that incorporates similar thinking. RAR Brewing in Cambridge, MD makes a killer beer called Habanero Nectar.

Bent River (from Rock Island/Moline, IL) has a Jalapeno Pepper Ale. They take it with them when they go to most festivals. I assume it's mostly for novelty. Tastes kinda like drinking nacho beer (probably make a good beer dip).

It was added on beeradvocate in like 2005, so apparently they've been doing it for a while.

Triangle Brewing Company from Durham, NC make their Habanero Pale Ale.

I went on a brewery tour here in 2014, exceptionally minimalist brewery, and very generous with the samples! I've got to say, personally, a half pint would be enough but it's 100% worth trying for the experience alone.

Welcome to Scoville from Jailbreak is a great beer. Beer Advocate
