A Note on This Beer
I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a bit of a Psychology geek.
And recently, the topic of conversation amongst my friends at post-work Happy Hour is how our environment impacts our happiness.
Seriously, think about it!
Sure, drinking good beer by yourself is enjoyable. Yet, when you’re drinking the same beer with friends at a bottle share, or a bustling taproom, or camping in the woods — it takes it to a whole new level of satisfaction!
This same idea is how Scratch Brewing has risen to fame, and earned the title of America’s Coolest Microbrewery from Men’s Journal.
These Illinois-based brewers make some of the most complex Wild Ales around, and do it all out of a tiny cabin surrounded by flourishing gardens and 75-acres of unspoiled woodland!
If you make the 2 hr+ plus drive from St. Louis to visit their taproom, you’d be welcomed with the sound of tranquil songbirds and a host of incredible beers. No wonder All About Beer Magazine calls it one of the most beautiful places to drink beer in the world.
Lucky for you, this is your chance to bring the unforgettable tasting experience of Scratch to your own home with today’s Blackberry and Lavender Wild Ale!
This bottle-conditioned pour is brightly effervescent with puckering tartness from the brewery’s own wild mixed culture and drips with sweet, juicy flavor from their locally grown blackberries. Instead of hops, the brewers bitter this tart delight with hand-picked lavender, lending the finish a nuanced floral note that deepens the flavor of the berries.
So, if you really want to get the full Scratch treatment, grab a couple of today’s refreshing delights. Then call up your closest pals, maybe light a pine-scented candle, and bask in the happiness that sharing a world-class brew can bring.
