I love finding beers that are off the beaten path a little bit. Something that’s so unique and quirky that it’s an absolute must-have for my next can run. With so many choices available, it can be tough to discern!
This week, let me take some of that pressure off for you. Cellar Works Brewing, located in Sarver, PA (around 20 miles North of Pittsburgh) has just the thing! This brew series has been getting amazing reviews and we’re doubly blessed with releases this weekend!
The Fruit Whip series is rapidly gaining hype throughout Pittsburgh for anyone who loves a fruited smoothie sour. Loaded with flavor, these beers are must haves – and the beer community treated it as such! These have flown off of the pre-orders! Cross your fingers you can grab a can in a holiday beer trade- you won’t regret it!
The first release? Peach Cobbler Baked Whip (6%). Oh, yes, this series is back with a vengeance! The first edition was a massive hit among beer nerds. The second edition is a smoothie style sour ale brewed with cinnamon, brown sugar, lactose, vanilla and a ton of peaches. This, in my oh-so-humble opinion is the perfect Christmas dinner dessert!
And the second? A return to the classic fruit whip series. The Raspberry Fruit Whip is one of the favorites and I had the pleasure of trying this one earlier this year! It’s an absolute fruit bomb. At 6%, it is loaded with enough tart and sweet to create a wonderfully smooth concoction.
If you managed to grab either of these amazing brews, I’m obscenely jealous. You are in for an absolute treat for the holidays! Cellar Works is a gem when it comes to Pittsburgh Beer. These Fruit Whips are some of the best sours, if not the best, in the ‘Burgh! Kudos to Cellar Works – keep making phenomenal beer! Haven’t tried them yet? I promise, it’s 100% worth the drive!
