A Note on This Beer
*This beer is over 50% gone!*
Bursting with vibrant pineapple, a nod of tart cherry, and brimming with rich brown sugar, this smoothie-brew is luxuriously thick and velvety, beautifully balanced, and ridiculously reminiscent of pineapple upside down cake!
It’s what you’d expect from Hoosier’s head brewer, Brian Pine. He honed his smoothie-style skills at the renowned 450 North Brewing, where he helped develop their coveted Fruited Sour series.
With an average score of 4.19 on Untappd, Hoosier’s Pie Face series is off to an equally illustrious start.
These brews are hard to come by. They rarely leave Indiana, and even locals have a tricky time finding a can — a recent Pie Face release sold out in just 9 minutes!
Thankfully, the Hoosier crew saved us a couple succulent slices of Pineapple Upside Down Cake!
For this batch, the brewers began with a Wild Sour Ale then loaded it up with luscious, tangy fruit and brown sugar. The sugar provides a toasty, pie-like counterbalance that uncannily captures the cake’s customary caramelization.

Hoosier paused their beer production in 2020 to focus on making hand sanitizer. Now they’re back, after donating over $1 Million to communities in need!
