Specialty Spice Beer

BJCP 2021:


The Specialty Spice Beer style is a unique and flavorful style that stands out for its creative use of spices, herbs, or vegetables, combined with additional ingredients like fermentable sugars, alternative grains, or other special elements.

In terms of appearance, aroma, flavor, and mouthfeel, the Specialty Spice Beer aligns closely with the Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer style. Its aroma and flavor profile is also akin to those beers but is enhanced by the additional fermentables like honey or molasses, contributing to the overall aroma and flavor complexity. These additional components should harmonize with the SHV and beer elements, creating a pleasant and well-integrated profile. The mouthfeel can vary depending on the type of sugar added, potentially increasing or decreasing the body of the beer.
