New Glarus Brewing Co. has added a brand new seasonal release to its lineup that was “inspired by berliner fairies.”
Berliner Apfel is a berliner-style ale that has been spontaneously fermented in the brewery’s “Fruit Cave” for one year and conditioned on fresh apples sourced from the 2018 harvest in the Kickapoo Valley.

The new ale is part of New Glarus’ Thumbprint Series, which according to head brewer Dan Carey, “…are still brewed with the beer enthusiast in mind. Always handcrafted, the bottle you hold is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again.”
According to a post on New Glarus’ Instagram page, Berliner Apfel is packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles that are now available for sale at the brewery and that are scheduled to be available at retailers across the state of Wisconsin by “next week.”
