We’re starting the holiday countdown a little early this year at SBC. Surrounded by a winter wonderland in both Elk Rapids and Bellaire, it seemed only too perfect to release this long awaited for brew. Each bottle of Juicy Tree is not only filled with spruce tips, cranberries, and juniper berries, but also an abundance of holiday cheer!
Juicy Tree (7.5 % ABV- 65 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. A sizable malt bill, ample hop additions, and the floral qualities of American Ale yeast, all contribute to symmetry of this beer.
So when you go to trim the tree, bake Christmas cookies, warm your toes by the fire , or air your grievances under the Festivus Pole, be sure to enjoy a bottle of Juicy Tree while you’re at it! Now available in stores across the mitten state.
