A Note on This Beer
“I like fruit baskets because they give you the ability to mail someone a piece of fruit without appearing insane. Like, if someone just mailed you an apple, you’d be like, ‘huh?’ But if it’s in a basket, you’re like, ‘nice.’” -Dimitri Martin
It’s true, fruit baskets ARE nice, but you know what’s even better? A basket full of deliciously tangy, fruit-loaded Wild Ales! Show up anywhere with THAT delectable gift, and whoever you give it to will think you’re a lot more than ‘nice.’
Especially when the beers in question are the 2019 Fragaria Hibiscus and Spontané: Kriek from Minneapolis’ Wild Mind. And today, you can snag both of these coveted bottles!
Share these cherry and strawberry-packed Wild Ales with your pals, and they’ll say things like ‘awesome!’ And ‘holy shit!’
Because a basket of fruit-packed beer beats boring ol’ produce any damn day.
The 4.22 UT-rated Fragaria Hibiscus is a blend of oak-aged Golden Sour Ales that positively glows with notes of lemon zest and subtle hints of funk. Then, the brewers at City Page’s Best Brewery in the Twin Cities load it with fresh strawberries and floral hibiscus. Take a sip, and it tastes like sweet-tart strawberry candy.
Then, there’s the 4.18 UT-rated Spontané: Kriek. This blend of one and two-year-old spontaneously fermented Wild Ales features deep folds of oaky complexity and nuances of barnyard funk. A truckload of both tart and sweet cherries means every drop is packed with bright stonefruit essence.
Put them both together, and you’ve got one heck of a fruit basket.
This gift-giving season, don’t show up at the party with a boring-ass basket of fruit. Give the craft fans in your life a bounty of beer and watch their eyes light up. Or just crack open these bottles yourself and have a night of indulgence.
That way, you don’t even have to find a basket.
