Pucker up for a raspberry pie kettle sour later this month.
The ladies of the New Mexico Pink Boots Society will be brewing the pink-tinted sour beer for its fifth annual brew day on Friday, March 6, at Canteen Brewhouse. The recipe created by Canteen head brewer Zach Guilmette has a pink hue and the flavor profile of raspberry pie.
“You will get some of that tart juiciness from the raspberry, but then we’re also adding graham cracker crumbs and some wheat to get that pie crust as well, so we’re really trying to go for an actual raspberry pie profile,” said Jess Griego, head of the New Mexico Pink Boots Society. “… We are trying to make the beer a homage to the Pink Boots Society, so we thought a pink beer would be fun, so that’s where we started and went from there. We’re looking forward to the graham cracker crumbs. I think it’s really going to round it out. It’s not your everyday sour but kind of a dessert beer.”
