A new release shipping next week from Prairie Artisan Ales incorporates an extra ingredient that was made especially for the beer.
The new beer is Prairie Ace, a 7.5 percent ABV farmhouse ale brewed with candy sugar that was made in-house and dry-hopped with Sorachi Ace hops. In an email, Wesley Morrison, brand ambassador for Prairie, told Tenemu that the candy sugar “will lead to a super dry base, and the Sorachi Ace hops will add the perfect amount of lemon/lime aroma and spice to help round out this beer. ”
This is not the first time that the Krebs, Okla.-based brewery has produced ingredients in-house to incorporate into one of its beers, as that was also the case with the caramel used in Birthday Bomb! (13 percent ABV) which was released in May.
According to Morrison, Prairie Ace will be packaged in 500ml bottles and is scheduled to be previewed at an event on Aug.11 before being shipped across the brewery’s entire distribution network staring on Aug. 16.
