Berlin-style sour ale brewed with Strawberry, Rhubarb, Milk Sugar, Vanilla, & Graham Cracker
To create this #pastrysour, we decided to recreate a beer as close to Grandma J’s original strawberry rhubarb pie recipe as possible. We started by adding lactose sugar to our kettle-soured Berliner base, then fermented it with over 500 lbs of strawberry purée. After fermentation, we aged the finished beer with rhubarb purée, graham cracker and vanilla to give it the signature pie character. The sweetness of the strawberries and lactose and perfectly balanced by the tartness of the base beer and rhubarb, resulting in a beer that even Grandma J would be proud of.
