Twisted Pine Brewing Cucumber Cream ale
Essentially this is the hors d’oeuvres of the beer choices for my new years; playfully light, yet interesting enough to pair with smoked salmon or crackers and cheese. The smoothness of the cream ale pairs extremely well with the fresh grassy character of the cucumber.
Twisted Pine began their Farm to Foam series in 2012 and again produced both their Cucumber Cream ale and Roots Revival their wildly popular carrot IPA in 2013. With the goal for some becoming increasingly about sourcing raw ingredients locally, Twisted Pine’s brewers found all the ingredients for each beer in-state. Cucumber cream utilizes malted barley and wheat from Colorado Malting Company in Alamosa, Crystal hops from Misty Mountain Hop Farm in Olathe, and English cucumbers from 2 R’s Farm in Platteville.
