Fruit beers: innovation or abomination?

fruit beer

The 4 main ingredients required to make beer are grain, yeast, hops and water. On that, we can all agree. But what is acceptable to add to this simple recipe depends entirely on who you ask.

To the purists, less is more. To everyone else, well…variety is the spice of life.

Brewers have responded to their consumers emphatically, and continue to push the boundaries of their craft. Take a stroll down the beer aisle and you’ll find everything from peanut butter porters to ghost chile ales and just about anything in between.

Fruit beers make up a significant portion of these flavor variations, and in a recent article from the Denver Post, brewers were asked about fruit’s place in the craft beer market.

So what about you? How do you feel about fruit beers? Innovation or abomination?

You’re among friends here, and we’d love to hear your thoughts…

    The more variety in beer, the better. Think about it…if brewers hadn’t pushed the beer boundaries to begin with, we’d all still be stuck drinking Budweiser, or heaven forbid, worse. Nobody feels sorry for the macro breweries that have taken a loss in profits due to other breweries breaking the mold…shame on them for doing nothing new for 150 years and having the gall the brag about it.
