Jersey Shore Orchard and Popular Brewery Team Up for Yummy Fall Ale
Run, don't walk to Source Brewing. They've teamed up with a local orchard for a new ale that'll make you DROOL.
Get ready for the Apple Cider Donut Ale - that's made with apple cider donuts from Battleview Orchards (I'm drooling just writing this, oh my God). Battleview dropped the glorious news on its Facebook page yesterday, and it's honestly what we all needed to hear.
The can shows it's a pastry cream ale, with apple cider, cinnamon, and vanilla flavors. And if you're curious about specifics, this ale packs a 6.8% alcohol by volume content.
My description doesn't do it justice. Check out Source Brewing's notes about the ale:
We incorporated their famous apple cider donuts directly into a mash comprised of primarily Maris Otter and Munich base malts with some golden toasted oats and other flavorful specialty malts added as well. During the boil we added brown sugar for a touch of caramelization character and milk sugar to thicken the body and lend a “creamy” mouthfeel sensation. While fermentation was fully underway we injected freshly pressed Battleview Orchards apple cider for the active yeast cells to happily feed on. Post fermentation this brew was cold conditioned on additional apple cider along with Saigon cinnamon sticks and Madagascar vanilla. We get notes of freshly baked Battleview Orchards apple cider donuts, glazed apple fritter, apple pie filling, sweet cinnamon sugar, caramelized apple, cinnamon sugar dusted churro, and fresh pressed Battleview Orchards apple cider.
Get. In. My. Belly.
