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!

Head 2 Head – Michigan Malty IPAs

This Head 2 Head is something I’ve wanted to do for a while now. When I tried the BBA Huma Lupa Licious against the regular version, it got me thinking. Could Huma Lupa Licious be my favorite malty Michigan IPA? Is it really better than Bell’s Two Hearted? What if we threw Blackrocks 51K IPA in there too? Well, on today’s video I do just that – I put them all to the test in my new “Head 2 Head” series.

Which other beers would you like to see go Head 2 Head?
