Default Beer ham glaze?

Does anyone have a decent recipe for a beer ham glaze? I've tried Googling, but couldn't find anything worth making (all the recipes called for "1-2 cans of beer").

My first thought was to try with something a bit malty, like some of the bottles of Blue Moon I have in the fridge. But rather than some crazy experimenting with the whole family's holiday dinner, I figured I'd ask around first.

Well, it's not exactly a beer glaze, but this was as close as I could find:

It doesn't seem all that different from this recipe:

I've actually made the 2nd one & it was pretty darned tasty. I'd think to make a beer glaze you'd need to reduce the beer, which would remove the alcohol. I've reduced porter, stout & brown ale to make sauces & had the best results with the porter. I also added things like soy sauce, spices & honey, even fruit.

I also found recipes for ham boiled in beer:
http://dumluks.blogspot.com/2006/02/...d-in-beer.html
And a couple of beer glaze recipes for ham, but there's not much beer in the glaze:

And:

Just be sure to let the beer you reduce go flat before you start to simmer it; it'll foam all over if you don't. Regards, GF.

My girlfriend found a decent ham glaze recipe and swapped out the orange juice for Blue Moon.

It was the best damned ham I've ever had.
