The combination of a plum and a cherry is called a “Pluerry.” The combination of a plum and a Pluerry inside a mixed-fermented beer is called “Shiro’s Delight.” This ruby beer’s base is fermented with two yeast strains: a saison strain and then our house strain of Brettanomyces. After about eight months of fermentation and aging, Pluerries and plums are added before the beer rests for another four months. The finished beer has a flavor that calls to mind a mixture of tart cherry, plum, and tropical fruit with hints of spice and oak.
