A Note on This Beer
Springtime at my grandparents’ always meant one thing: fresh-from-scratch strawberry rhubarb pie!
My mouth waters at the mere thought of those juicy, sweet strawberries baked together with chunks of tart rhubarb, all warm and gooey under a blanket of homemade pie crust.
Before WeldWerks came along with Grandma J’s Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Berliner Weisse, I thought no one could do those flavors like my grandma. Boy, was I wrong!
To pack the succulent deliciousness of granny’s homemade pie into every sip, the brewers first add a dose of lactose to their kettle-soured Berliner base. Then, they re-ferment it on over 400 lbs of strawberry purée to soak up every last juicy drop. Finally, they age the whole shebang on 30 lbs of tart rhubarb purée, crunchy graham crackers, and smooth vanilla!
The resulting sipper is a bright and silky fruit bomb, where vanilla-coated strawberry sweetness expertly balances against the tartness of rhubarb and the Berliner Weisse base.
But, you can only indulge if you’re quick enough to score a sizable slice of our stash — you guys gobbled up every drop of WeldWerks’ last pastry-inspired treat in just a few hours!!
