In this spotlight, Sierra Nevada teamed up with a super group of brewers known as the Asheville Brewers Alliance to create to create Tater Ridge, a Scottish Ale with sweet potatoes. Featured North Carolina brewers include Luke Dickinson of Wicked Weed, and John Stuart of Green Man Brewing.

Pipeworks Brewing Company’s (Chicago, IL) are the buzz of social media these days. Of course they are, when you have beers like Raspberry Truffle Abduction, Coffee Break Abduction, and Smore Money, Smore Problems.
Pipeworks Batata Obscura looks like a rename of Nisperos Batata. This edition is higher in alcohol, and the brewery mentions it is worthy of cellaring.
It is inspired by the Puerto Rican dessert by the same name. Batata is brewed with sweet potatoes, clove, cinnamon, vanilla and toasted coconut, and is a perfect tribute to the brewery’s Puerto Rican neighbors.
