One of our favorite parts about living in Northern Michigan are our beloved forests and what better way to pay homage to the place we love than to brew a beer using local ingredients. Juicy Tree is brewed with blue spruce tips we foraged ourselves, cranberries, and juniper berries. It’s piney, dank, and slightly sweet. This experimental brew really encompasses what we do here, make tasty beers and have fun while we do it!
Juicy Tree (9.5% ABV – 82 IBU) is an experimental India Pale Ale made with blue spruce tips, juniper berries, and cranberries. Big aromatics of piney evergreen and sweet berries tingle the senses. After some slightly tart and tangy flavors up front, a harmonious balance between pleasant fruit sweetness and bitter pine is reached. The finish is laced with a resiny stickiness that flows naturally into a lasting bitterness.
Look for Juicy Tree to begin hitting Michigan store shelves and on tap this week.
