Ale with Honey, Vanilla, and a Dash of Salt
Based on local Portland purveyor Lauretta Jean’s best selling pie, this auburn colored brew provides a baked quality, with a lovely dry effervescence. This beer is perfectly complementary, delivering a delightful balance to the sweetness in the pie of the same name. Enjoyable on it’s own and easy to drink, the wildflower honey from Mt. Hood and vanilla add a slight caramel/cream soda-like malty sweetness with a touch of salt to this light-bodied ale. For me, it’s a cream soda for adults that’s the perfect addition to cut a sweet dessert. This is a one and done specialty batch.
