From Maine With Love #27
This take on a beer spritz was inspired by the Spaghett cocktail, which typically features lemon and Aperol—an bitter orange-flavored Italian botanical aperitif—added to a light lager. Our version is brewed with a range of bittering botanicals, including rhubarb, red cinchona, angelica root, and gentian root. We add lemon and orange zest for a citrusy pop before fermenting it with a Belgian lager strain. Deliciously drinkable and refreshingly complex, this one pairs perfectly with springtime.
