B4B Spotlight: Raining Beets
Adam Zuniga (@beerandthecity) is Sixpoint’s reigning metal head, and when he talked with the guys at Barrier Brewing about doing a beer, that’s where the conversation turned.
As a tribute to the Metal fan in all of us we brewed up a diabolical concoction, consecrated by Slayer blasting at face-melting volumes.
We hacked up dozens of beets, pureed them, and poured them into the boil. The extra pale ale turned blood red, and we single hopped it with the aptly named Warrior strain.
The beer, for all of its grisly appearance, is a drinkable, earthy, bright red brew. The beets provide a unique, but not overpowering character. It’s sure to be one brew that you go back to at Beer For Beasts.
Raining Beets is just one of over 30 custom beers at this year’s Beer for Beasts, and some tickets are still available! Get yours here.
