We are switching things up a bit with “Beers with Beshear”. Since Governor Andy Beshear’s press conferences are becoming few and far between, we are changing the post to “Beers with Bernhard”. That’s me!
With taprooms, bars and restaurants slowly beginning to reopen across the state, the craft beer industry in Kentucky is starting to return to normalcy. Every weekend, I will continue to highlight a different Kentucky craft beer to show support of all the amazing breweries across our Commonwealth. And now that most are open, you can visit the taproom and try it yourself!
Akasha Brewing: Blueberry Chiffon
According to our good pal Wikipedia, chiffon is “a very light cake made with vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and flavorings. Its distinctive feature is from the use of vegetable oil, instead of the traditional fat which is solid at room temperature, such as butter or shortening.”
I’ve never heard of a chiffon cake until Akasha Brewing released their Blueberry Chiffon fruited sour ale. Blueberry chiffon is brewed with blueberry, lemon, vanilla and lactose making this beer a blueberry cake in beer form.
I was a little skeptical of this beer, but, my oh my, it was delicious. Akasha just released a Raspberry Chiffon and I am going to need to try that ASAP.
Style: Sour Ale
Description: Pastry-style sour ale with Blueberry, Lemon, Vanilla, and Lactose. Sweet. Tart. Creamy. Refreshing.
