A Note on This Beer
With a thick trunk that holds up to 31,700 gallons of water and velvety fruit chock-full of vitamin C, the baobab is known throughout Africa as the “tree of life.”
And until now, I’ll bet you’ve never had the pleasure of tasting it in a beer.
Today’s Baobiere is a 7.8% ABV Golden Ale, woven with a crisp, subtly tangy flavor from baobab fruit imported straight from West Africa!
Each sip is like sipping on a glass of fresh-made lemonade, intermingled with bites of bread crust topped with tamarind jam. Pleasant citrus aromas abound. It’s a delightful departure from the norm, a sipper sure to satisfy on a hot day.
And, it snagged the silver medal at last year’s New York International Beer Competition!
Baobiere also marks Montclair Brewery’s Tavour debut, which also has me super stoked! In just a few short years, this North Jersey crew has stacked up a mountain of acclaim:
- In 2019, they won the ‘Best New Business’ Award from NJ Black Businesses
- From NJ.com to the Washington Post, both local and national publications call out Montclair Brewery’s creations as “game changing.”
- Suburban Essex Magazine named them the Best Brewery/Distillery in Essex County!
Honestly, I could go on and on about how awesome these guys are (heck, they were even featured in an AT&T commercial last year; they’re that cool!) but the best way to get to know them is to taste their innovative brews. You’re in luck today — you get to start with Baobiere!
Montclair Brewery is run by husband and wife team Denise Ford-Sawadogo and Leo Sawadogo who often express their Jamaican and West African roots through the art of brewing!
