Southern Beer Tour’s Celebrates it’s Fifth Anniversary!

Wow, how time flies! Five years ago we set out on our very first beer tour! Every year on our anniversary we make a cask with SweetWater to celebrate. This cask will be pouring at our March 9th tour. So come grab a pint!

We started with SweetWater’s newest seasonal Peach, Love, and Happiness as our base beer. We couldn’t think of a better beer to represent Georgia and spring!

Our inspiration for this beer was to create a Kentucky Peach Cobbler. We soaked our peaches in Maker’s Mark. And added dried cinnamon bark to our cask.

Next up was to go to the lab and grab some lactose sugars to add. This will give the beer some creaminess to round out the flavor.

To finish it up we pitched the yeast, filled the cask, and pounded the bunghole. (its a thing, look it up, but not at work, just in case)

Special thanks to our longtime friend Nick B who has helped us make this cask every year. He is doing great things over in the Woodlands and helps keep that 420 flowing!
