This Week at the Shop: Drink Pink!

I know that everyone says it is time to drink rose, but that is not what this is about! There are plenty of other pink options out there for those that still want to enjoy a tasting beverage without sacrificing a bunch of grapes … and we are here to help …

  • Eden Imperial 11° Rosé: Are you sparkling rosé wine lover? This may be the best one you have every had! It is made only from apples and red currants. No added sugar, coloring or other flavoring. The juice is freeze concentrated before fermentation by the winter weather in Northern Vermont, just like their ice cider, but to a lower level. Then it is co-fermented with red currant juice. Lightly carbonated, it is delicious and full-flavored. Perfect accompaniment for grilling out or just to sip on the patio! 11% ABV, 15 g/L RS
  • Blue Bee Mill Race Bramble: Mill Race Bramble infuses a cider primarily from heirloom Summer Rambo apples with bramble berries to accentuate the cider’s sharpness and fruit notes. 0.8% RS, 7.0% ABV
  • Potter’s Craft Cider Grapefruit-Hibiscus: Pink blush from hibiscus petal infusion complemented by citrus aroma of grapefruit peel. Finish is crisp and tart for a truly refreshing cider! 9% ABV
  • O’Connor La Preciosa Hibiscus Saison: “This hibiscus saison pours brilliantly red. A bouquet of citrus, vanilla, and floral aromas rise from the glass. This is a perfect compliment to a warm summer day. Flavors of berries and hibiscus are met with a slight tartness and a dry finish. Sure to be a summer favorite!” 6% ABV, 46 IBUs
  • Schlafly Raspberry Hefeweizen: A true fruit beer, not a fruit-flavored beer. Pureed raspberries are added during the primary fermentation process with no additional sugar, colors, or flavors. The resulting beer is a hazy pink color, with citrus aromas from the wheat and a flavor that is neat and tart. While this beer is low in bitterness, it is not overwhelmingly sweet, making it a thoroughly drinkable beer for the season. 4.1% ABV, 16 IBU
