Anchor Blackberry Daze IPA
Blackberries used to run rampant in California. Now what run rampant are non-official residents fearing deportation, and craft beer. Being experts in the latter, San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing gives us this blackberry IPA. Still developing their fruit beer offerings, Anchor looked to complement their hops-pertise rather than counter it. So they added blackberries to the beer as it underwent secondary fermentation (with a little at boil’s end to provide aroma). What came out is a delightful play between tart, sweet, and bitter flavors.
