A Note on This Beer
The brewers at Mountains Walking don’t screw around. When they set out to make a beer that tastes just like a fresh-from-the-oven fruit tart pastry, they went straight to their favorite source — Bozeman, Montana’s own Wild Crumb Bakery.
And, they weren’t just looking for pointers. The brewers actually took an “absurd amount” of Wild Crumb’s beloved fruit tart crust and added it straight to their kettle. Then, they recreated the flavors of a creamy, citrusy, marmalade topping by conditioning a Sour Ale on piles of toasted coconut, blood orange purée, and vanilla. A ribbon of silky smooth lactose makes it all milkshake-soft.
That’s why Sweets: Blood Orange Coconut tastes so much like the real thing — the brewers took the recipe for an actual fruit tart, and used it to brew a beer!
No wonder PorchDrinking calls Mountains Walking “trailblazers when it comes to brewing new and creative beers!”
If you’re looking for a delicious dessert beer to pair with your next holiday meal, take a cue from Mountains Walking and consult the experts. Of course, when it comes to new-school Pastry Sours, these brewers ARE the experts.
