Imperial Peaches and Crème is a high gravity, golden ale, fermented with lactose and fresh peaches. Joe Short used this eloquent bi-line to describe the beer’s flavor profile: “Cream softness fused with the delicacy of Prunus persica.” We used a half pound of real, fresh peaches and approximately 1.5 ounces of milk sugar for every gallon of beer produced.
Peaches and Crème was originally brewed in Bellaire on April 25, 2007 and was the 301st batch of beer brewed at Short’s. It was the 12th beer of the 13 beer Imperial series. The Imperial label artwork was created by Fritz Horstman, which also got carried over for the artwork used on the 6 packs.
