“This is a recipe we have used for the past 5 years. The beer really tenderizes the ham. Using beer is probably a Wisconsin thing. We seem to find many uses for it. But don't worry, the ham will not taste like beer when it is done other than maybe a small hint on the bottom portions. I don't like beer at all, so I was quite skeptical at first, but when I found out that the ham I had at my friend's house for Christmas the year before had beer used to make it, I tried it and have been hooked ever since.” - by LBMQH

"Too bad there are not ten stars here. This recipe certainly deserves it! I baked my first ham today for a family gathering. After combing this site for recipes, I chose this one. And am I ever glad I ..." See moredid! My friends whom I consulted on baking my ham kept telling me to use coke instead of beer. I'm glad I didn't listen! This was one of the most delicious hams I have ever tasted. My husband, who does not really care for ham, couldn't keep from eating it while he was slicing it. He said it was "awesome"! You absolutely can't beat how simple this recipe is. Tender, moist and juicy. I can't wait to do this again! Thanks for the great recipe!"
"This moist and tender ham could not be easier! I used a large, turkey-size oven bag, two bottles of Yuengling, and almost a full can of pineapple slices. Everyone remarked that they'd never eaten such..." See more a moist ham. After slicing it, I combined about 1/2 C each of honey, butter, and orange juice and added about 1 tsp. cinnamon, brought to a boil, and poured over the sliced ham. I reheated gently, and it did ont dry out at all. Delicious! I will use this method again!"
"I made this w/ a spiral ham, and it was DELICIOUS! I've never had such a tender, juicy ham. I used Alaskan Smoked Porter, which was a perfect compliment. I also used a glaze (I wasn't completely convi..." See morenced that just the beer & pineapple give enough flavor) of 1 cup honey, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup of pineapple juice, and 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves. I brushed on the mixture every 15-20 minutes, and removed the cover at the end to carmelize the glaze. The drippings even made a delicious gravy! Everyone loved it... from now on, I will always cook my ham in beer."
