I finish the Smoothie brewery month with what I consider the grandfather, progenitor of the style. Omnipollo. I remember seeing them tap out of their wild creations at the Firestone Walker Invitational at least twice and wondering what was driving the interest. The following beers might answer that question.
Pleroma Blackberry Blueberry Lime Crème Brûlée
“Blackberries, blueberries and a dash of lime crème brûlée sour ale brewed with berries, lactose sugar and lots of finely ground vanilla. The creaminess and notable flavors of berries are balanced out with the bite from the gentle amount of lime.”
Tropical Smoothie Hard Seltzer
Pineapple Peach Passionfruit Tropical Smoothie Hard Seltzer brewed with our friends at Untitled Art blends our favorite juicy, tropical fruits with a dash of lactose sugar and our finest ground vanilla pods.
Bianca Guava Lychee Passionfruit Lassi Gose
Tropical, fruit heavy gose containing some of our favorite fruits of the season. Brewed with rock salt, lactose, guava, lychee and passionfruit. 5
Next up is the bi-located Urban South Brewery which has spots in both Louisiana and Texas.
Let’s dive into there fruited beers…
Spillage Sour IPA Raspberry Vanilla Lemonade – “Base on a blend of milkshake IPA and our barrel fermented sour base. Conditioned on Raspberry, Vanilla and Lemonade.”
Double Spilled Pineapple Marshmallow – “Riped pineapples with the creamy smoothie Marshmallow mouthfeel.”
Triple Spilled – “Passion-fruit, Papaya, Tart Cherry, Guava, Pineapple, Apple: Over the river and through the woods to Fruit city! Explosion island of passion-fruit exploding right at first sip leaving you blown away over to the jungle of papaya city exotic flavors leaving you with doses of Pineapples and Apples lane to stop you at your tracks with Guava punch.”
Even the name sounds gacky to me but the people love this new trend so let’s look at Smooj and their hard seltzer smoothies.
This brand comes from HOMES Brewery’s sister company, Troobado and they have two leading flavors. One is strawberry banana and the other is pina colada. Passion fruit, raspberry pina colada and frozen slushies with rum and gin are available at the Homes brewery location.
