Real Blueberry Beer is Purple

Friday, April 19, 2013

Adding fruit to beer is a practice debated among people that only drink boring beer. Interesting beer has any sort of ingredient you can think of and blueberries are a great one! The most startling thing about real homebrewed blueberry beer is that it's not a nice amber like most you will buy at the store or on draft, it's purple!

Blueberries were used as a dye since they were discovered. So, why does commercial blueberry beer never have that beautiful hue to it? That's because what is most likely in the beer is blueberry flavoring (extract) that imparts no color at all.

Sure it may taste ok but trust me, purple beer tastes way better. Keep an eye out for my recipe real soon.
