Berliner Weiss is a sour, tart, fruity, effervescent ale, often referred to as the champagne of beers for its light and sparkly texture so it’s no wonder that our GABF Gold-medal winning German Sparkle Party makes for a great jumping off point for even more sour goodness. We use our Berliner Weiss as a base beer and add copious amounts of various fruits to create the beers for our Crush series. Here we will be showcasing Apricot Crush, Cucumber Crush and a one-off keg of Strawberry Crush made exclusively for this event. All of the beers clock in at 5% ABV and 4 IBUs.
