Getting Saucy with Our Brewhouse Sauces

Although we prefer spice, we like to get a little saucy from time to time as well, here at Old Town Spice Shop. You see, we’re not your typical herbs and spices shop or hot sauce store for that matter. This is precisely why we’ve created our own line of Brewhouse Sauces.

Our Brewhouse Sauces are a line of unique hot sauces, mustards, BBQ sauces, and easy-to-make marinades and dressings created by your friendly local spice enthusiasts here at Old Town Spice Shop. The saucy part is that they’re all made with local craft beers.

And get this…we’ll be unveiling more sauces throughout the upcoming year. We currently have 3-4 recipes nearly finished with a lot of fun, new, and tasty flavors each with corresponding local lore. So stay tuned.

Get the scoop below on each of our tasty sauces and choose which suits you best!
