Once Upon an Orchard: Cherries & Raspberries

Dark Sour Ale Aged with Cherries & Raspberries

Once, a traveling group of brewers happened upon a farmer stuck in a ditch. His cart had too many fresh raspberries and cherries. The brewers helped to push his cart out, but he soon was stuck again. So, as payment, the farmer gave them bushels and bushels of berries, which the brewers decided to age in a dark, tart beer. The result was a rich, complex beer filled with notes of fresh cherry, ripe raspberry, pie spice, and a hint of cocoa. And they sipped it happily ever after.
