David Burke's peachy way to glaze ham with beer

We trust our the success of our holiday meats to nobody but celebrity chefs. Well, and Mom and Grandma and stuff. But unless they can invent something better than lobster steak, we're going to have to go with David Burke for our Easter ham glaze this year. 

Burke combines the malty caramel flavor of Samuel Adams Boston Lager with sweet, sticky caramelized peaches for a glaze any ham would be only too lucky to have brushed on in layers, just as we intend to do.
