Our sixth out-of-state collaboration is with Sun King Brewing from Indianapolis. We virtually collaborated on this new summer beer. We married our breweries’ interest in fun and playful beers to create this Sparkler. What is a Sparkler exactly? It’s a fruited sour ale blended with a housemade club soda. We employed our tried-and-true process for making a dry, tart, and textural sour beer and then designed a bespoke club soda (don’t call it a seltzer!) to make the beer drink more like a refreshing summer cocktail. If ‘beer cooler’ is a thing, this is it: with big additions of guava and lime zest, we’ve imbued this with bright tropical and citric notes. Kick back, relax, and enjoy this unheralded summer of 2020.
