Summer beers mean summer flavors. One of my favorite things about this season is fruit beers jump onto the horizon here. Now, I know that the juicy goodness of a Hazy IPA is present all year around, but I’m not talking about that. Other adjuncts are joining the party – it’s berry season!
One of the first summery brews I’ve managed to get my hands on is Aurochs Brewing’s Sunburst Milkshake IPA. The coolest part about Aurochs is that all of their brews are naturally gluten-free and brewed with quinoa and millet, so anyone with a gluten sensitivity or allergy doesn’t have to worry. I want to try any beer that has blueberry in it as it’s my favorite fruit, so that first caught my eye. Created with peaches, blueberry and lactose milk sugar, this is a brew that sounds like the perfect early summertime treat!
Hopped with Citra and Mosaic hops, this beer may be fruity but has that IPA taste front and center to enjoy. Blueberry and peach notes come in and mellow out the brew with a lovely vanilla taste from the lactose ending the flavor profile. At 6.4%, this beer is light and easy, you’ll want another!
As of right now, Aurochs is operating to-go only. The brewery is focusing on shipping to more states and getting their brews out throughout the east coast! The Sunburst Milkshake is available for pickup only and in crowlers (around two pints of beer) to enjoy. Pick one up for next weekend – the brewery is open from Thursdays-Saturdays.
Aurochs has a ton of awesome stuff coming down the pipeline as well. They just released sick new Merch, including a bright blue sunburst t shirt that’s perfect for those summertime brewery crawls. There’s also two other shirts with the classic logo available for preorder, as well as a trucker hat and mug for those summertime camp outs. Order online via Aurochs’s site and orders will be available for pick up or shipping by May 25th! There’s also more beer coming, stay tuned for what’s next and raise a glass to this berry good beer!
