Check out this great video documenting Almanac Beer Company’s journey in making their first beer.
And if you haven’t tried it yet – seek it out – there really isn’t much like it out there. Jesse says it right when he talks about it not being a fruit beer but being a delicious food beer that was made with fresh of the season fruit. You can’t fake that light dry sun-baked (ok that might just me being a bit nostalgic for picking fruit in the summer) blackberry flavor.
While I am giving Almanac props, I should also point you all to Jesse’s soda company SodaCraft. He is making naturally fermented sodas that are much better then most you have tried. My favorites so far are Xtra-dry ginger ale and blackberry pie.
