Over the past couple years, we as a whole, have become very obsessed with pickles...wouldn't you say so? Pickle icecream, pickle whisky, pickles slushies, and now we have PICKLE BEER. Tbh, I would try it; I like pickles, I like beer, not saying it sounds like a winning combo; but sometimes the strangest things are the BEST! (ex pretzels and icecream, marshmallows and spaghetti---don't knock it until you try it!)
Sam-Sam The Pickle Man is a collab between Down the Road Beer Company of Everett, Mississippi and Grillo's Pickles. The brew was originally created for the Boston Pickles Fair (yes, that's a thing and yes we are already googling the date for next year's fair). The end result: a sour beer with a spicy dill pickle brine. According to tasters, the beer tastes of lemons, cucumbers and berries (???) and it smells like pickles and cucumbers. Obviously the crazy concoction sold out at the Boston Pickle Fair and we have yet to hear whether Down the Road Beer Co will bring it back.
Here's to hoping someone local jumps on the Pickle band wagon, because I'm here for it!
