Another year has passed, and beer drinkers everywhere are taking inventory of their beer stash. No doubt we all have some skeleton beers in the cooler. We can either pour the beer out or take our chances. Bissell Brothers Brewing (Portland, Maine) is no different, taking some of the old and combining it with some of the new.
Freezer Cleaner is a mixed fermentation ale aged in an oak foeder. The Brothers took the fruit from the last season (which includes strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and peaches) and add it to a “great-but-not-perfect” base beer.
The resulting beer is effervescent with floral and fruity notes from the emptied freezer, which includes “peach tea, kiwi fuzz, and orange wine.” Showing that a beer can be greater than the sum of its parts, Freezer Cleaner is available at the brewery for pick-up and Maine home delivery. Look to Bissell Brothers social media for release dates to other areas soon.
