This beer blurs the lines between craft beer & cocktails. Think the “Moscow Mule” of beer!
Fresh grated ginger & a bit of red pepper flakes add a spicy, somewhat hot flavor note. Ginger adds a nice pungent, floral aroma as a complement to the sweetness of the agave syrup, lime & malt backbone. Lime concentrate adds a mildly acidic & tart note that balances the Agave sweetness. It adds a new dimension of flavor & aroma.
Organic Azul Raw Light Agave Nectar was added directly into the kettle at the start of the boil. Agave is comparable, though not identical, to honey. The lighter syrups undergo less heating & a more thorough filtration for a more mildly flavored product.
We chose Cascade & Willamette hops because of their spicy, citrusy aroma & grapefruit notes. The sweetness of lime & agave pair nicely with these bright, floral hops. The slight spiciness of Cascade hops contrasts the lime concentrate just so.
