Fox Barrel's Ginger and Blackcurrant

Fox Barrel's Ginger and Blackcurrant

The best cider I have ever tasted! I’ve never had a pear cider before, it was nothing like I have ever tasted. Fox Barrel’s unfiltered pear cider has a cloudy reddish hue at first pour. This spicy red pear cider is infused with ginger extract, blackcurrant juice and organic honey. It has an aroma of sweet pear. The flavor is a rich pear and ginger at first taste. There is just enough ginger bite without that ginger burn. The last few sips are even sweeter than the first.

Tip: Give a full bottoms up tilt & swirl to evenly disperse the unfiltered pear-wine sediment.

Rogue Bacon Maple Ale

Rogue Bacon Maple Ale

When you combine a Rogue Ale with a Voodoo Doughnut it creates Bacon Maple Ale. This crazy concoction contains a baker’s dozen number of ingredients including bacon and maple syrup from one of Voodoo’s signature doughnuts. Although I don’t eat meat I have to admit I was very intrigued by this collision of beer and doughnuts. I wasn’t looking forward to any sort of bacon taste. The first sip is a burst of maple syrup and concludes with a smoky aftertaste that definitely stays with you! Personally the smokiness is too overwhelming. This ale is definitely a required taste that I just didn’t like. I will be sticking with my Dead Guy Ale.
