Half Acre Beer tapped a “friendship brew” with Coedo Brewing today. Brewed with citrus hops, and yuzu juice.
The result, Tamayura, is an ardently refreshing, slightly tart, hair raiser. We laid down a frame of cracker dry malt, splashed 22 liters of 100% yuzu juice into the pool, dry hopped with Hallertau Blanc and Amarillo, and a few days before packaging, we grabbed all the citrus fruits we could manage – oranges, grapefruits, lemons, yuzu – and got to zesting, steeping the beer over the weekend before its migration into kegs.
On tap at Half Acre in Chicago as of December 10th, 2014.
