A Note on This Beer
Drekker Brewing Co. has amassed quite the following over the years, for two main reasons:
- From fruit smoothies to PB&J sandwiches, they’re flavor masters who love pushing boundaries.
- Those boundary-pushing beers are really, really tasty!
And I gotta say, every time I feel like I’ve seen it all, Drekker keeps surprising me with insane new brews with unique flavors. Like today’s GORP Be With You.
If you’re like me and think “GORP” sounds like a made-up word that Mork from Ork would say, Google defines it as “a mixture of dried fruit and nuts eaten as a snack food by hikers and campers.” In other words, trail mix!
To whip it into a tasty Fruited Sour, the Drekker folks teamed up with their Midwest neighbors at Lua Brewing and Ansari’s Mediterranean Grill. Together, they packed the brew with plums, cranberries, raspberries, peanut butter, lactose, sea salt, chocolate, and yes — real granola.
The result is a thick-as-a-brick Smoothie Sour with all the revitalizing, hunger-satiating flavors of a trail mix loaded with M&Ms and dried fruit. It toes the line between tangy and sweet, and it’s supremely satisfying. I’m grabbing extra just to bring on fall hikes!
