Blue Point Brewing Company Blueberry Ale
After the dismal blueberry wheat ale I had awhile back, I was skeptical of this one. Since it’s a Long Island brewery, I’ve seen it a LOT lately on tap at bars by me though so I jumped in an ordered a bottle.
According to their site: Blue Point fresh Blueberry Ale offers an unusual twist on brewing that turns out to be just perfect. A wonderful blend of fresh blueberries matched with a thirst quenching distinctive ale. We carefully add 132 lbs of blueberries to each special batch. Brewed with 100% American ingredients. Enjoy a truly unique flavorful brew! 4.3% ABV
I thoroughly enjoyed this, and have had it a few times since, both on tap and in bottles. The smell of blueberries is light and not overwhelming. The blueberry taste is natural and there’s no ‘fake’ sweetness to it. Definitely a refreshing beer to drink on a hot day.
I saw someone recommend topping this with a Guinness to make a “chocolate covered blueberry”…very tempted….
