Allagash Brewing (Portland, ME) has been working on a beer with currant berries for a little bit. Now we know what it will be…. Currant Affair.
Currants are berries that grow on shrubs, and come in black, red and white varieties. Red and black are most commonly used of the three, with red being more tart than the black and white berries.
Allagash Currant Affair will be available in 12.7oz bottles.
Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Currants)
Availability: 12.7oz Bottles
Fun Fact: Maury Povich was an anchor on the TV “Current Affair.” Before going all tabloid-y.
