Do you ever get bored of drinking delicious beers that taste like, well… beer? Do you get excited about fresh, sweet beets from the garden in summer? Well, here is the beer for you! Beet Picker Ale is all about the delicious, earthy goodness of beets. Yeah, you read that right. Beets. We’re excited to have this beer back for the first time since 2017 and is by far one of the most unique beers we have ever made!
This beer pours a brilliant red (seriously, it’s super red) with foam varying from white to blush pink, depending on the light. An unmistakable aroma follows, earthy and smooth. A rich roundness of fresh beets winds through as you drink. Quickly mellowing, the garden-fresh flavours leading to a gentle sweetness that lingers shortly on the palate.
A couple of interesting notes for those fellow beer nerds. This beer uses beets grown at Spring Creek Garden (Outlook), as well as malt from our good friends at Prairie Malt (Biggar), in the mash phase of brewing. Additionally, to really pump up more beet flavour, we added more of those funky little sugary red lumps into the fermentor. Think dry-hopping, but with beets. Honestly, this beer is as interesting to drink as it is to describe.
Beers. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.
