For the second time this year, No-Li Brewhouse and Oregon Fruit Products are joining forces to produce a fruit-based beer.
Named Mosh Pit Tart Cherry Ale, the new 7.5 percent ABV beer is brewed using cherry and cranberry purees from the Willamette Valley of western Oregon along with cluster and cascade hops and two-row malts.
“The product itself is really what sells me on it,” said Mark Irvin, No-Li co-owner and brewmaster, in a press release. “Very consistent, high-quality fruit products that are incredibly versatile and easy to use in a brewery. It validates the excellence of the ingredients available to us in the Pacific Northwest, and keeps it local.”
The two companies first collaborated in September, producing No-Li’s first ever pumpkin beer named Krumpkin. The imperial cranberry pumpkin ale was a draft-only release limited to one batch that sold out in just two weeks. In contrast, Mosh Pit Tart Cherry Ale will be available year-round in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles and on draft starting in early December across No-Li’s entire distribution network, which includes Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon and Washington, D.C., as well as parts of Canada.
