Barrel and Beam – Frugivore Kettle Sour – A Summer Beer with Mangoes!

Today I’m checking out a Kettle Sour from the UP – specifically, Marquette, Michigan. This is Frugivore from Barrel + Beam, which they say on their website “a brewery solely focused on crafting world-class farmhouse and barrel-aged real ale. Our name reflects the intersection of Old-World process with New-World taste and premium ingredients.” Frugivore is a Kettle Sour that’s brewed with mangoes, and they like to categorize it as a summer beer. Since it’s still technically warm enough to be summer, I thought this would be a good time to take a look at it, so stay tuned!

Other Half – Oh… Dream DDH IPA

This was easily one of my favorite brews from HOMES inagural Nucleate Festival – Other Half’s DDH Oh… Dream. I was lucky enough to snag a can and bring it back to you. Out of Brooklyn, New York, Other Half is one of the most highly regarded craft breweries from a very saturated area, and this one features Tons of Citra, Galaxy and Motueka hops. Was my judgement clouded by over-imbibing? Watch for a level headed evaluation!
