Barley's Brewing Company - Firkin Good Ale

Strawberry Berlimer Weisse

Food Pairings: The lactic sourness of Mildred's Sauerkraut balls or Chef Joe's Grilled house-made corned beef Reuben are delightful matches. Strawberry Berlimer would wash down beer battered fish and chips or pierogi and sausage so well that you'd be likely to forget about a dystopian pandemic.

About the Ale: Our second sour ale (Compassionate Dragon was our first), Strawberry Berlimer has a clean, refreshing lactic tartness. While marginally stronger than traditional Berliner Weisse, it would qualify as a low alcohol beer by American standards. A grain bill of German barley and wheat malts evoke the aroma and flavor of fresh sourdough bread. The handmade zest of two cases of limes was added to the brew kettle, and one of our most generous additions of fruit puree at the end of fermentation slathers that sourdough with jam. Strawberry Berlimer is a sweet and sour quencher that justifies taking off your face mask.
