Rail Yard Ale Beer Mustard.
Mustard maven Mady Smith found herself selling paper products in the early 1980s, but didn't enjoy it.
"Sometimes a job just isn't for you," Smith says. Her backup plan: "I knew I could sell peanut brittle."
And she was right: Her grandmother's recipe was an instant success at high-end outlets like the Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs, so she started making beer mustard, pepper jelly and other products. She's since scaled back to focus only on mustard, including her first private-label foray, Rail Yard Ale Beer Mustard, which she makes for Wynkoop Brewing Co. and its sister restaurants.
"It was love at first taste," says Smith, who says she agreed to make the mustard because she's a big fan of Wynkoop founder and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper. $5 retail.
