Blueberry Cerveza

Posted by Terésa Cerveza, August 2nd, 2012 | 0 Comments

Did this July whip by faster than usual? Maybe it was the gorgeous heat spell and the excitement of hosting guests for the 100th Stampede? Or the series of late nights working in the brew room to restock the wine racks and beer fridges? No matter, it was a great one.  So what says summer more than a berry beer?  My next batch will feature Saskatoons.  I am going to use clear bottles again, like I did with my Wild Blueberry Cerveza (pictured).  

Research has shown that beer keeps best bottled in brown glass, but who can resist the jewel-like appearance of these babies?  My friends and I sucked back 67 of them in record time, so keeping it around wasn't a problem.  It was beautifully carbonated and stable after only three weeks of standing in my VERY warm pantry.  The berry flavour was subtle, but definitely there, balancing nicely with the crisp, light Mexican style beer base.  We drank them straight from the bottles after briefly admiring them floating around in the ice bucket. 

It was a bit more work to use such little bottles, but I've already forgotten about that part.  I prefer to remember the heat, sunshine and laughter over some wonderful tasting, great looking summer beers.
