Peppered beers

Postby skaghevn » Sun Nov 17, 2019 2:22 am

Beers with peppers have always been scarce in these parts, and I'm not in touch with the local scene as much as I used to be: what's going 'round these days besides Bandit's Cake Monster (choco porter with habanero)? And is there anything looming on the horizon that I ought be on the lookout for?

Frank Brewery makes Honey Habanero which is fairly widely available in the LCBO.

Wellington produced Raked Over Mango Pineapple Habanero IPA. It was available in their Brewery Mix Pack Volume 6 which is virtually sold out. Doesn't seem to be currently available at the brewery.

Great Lakes has Murder for a Jar of Red Rum, a stout with grilled serranos and chocolate. It was decent, a bit mild all things considered though.

Blood Brothers' Passion of the Spice, a sour brewed with fruit and California Reapers, is pleasantly intense.

Thanks for the suggestions; hope to be hitting GLB & BB this week. Will probably hit the 'BO too for the Honey Habanero, even though honeyed beers aren't my fave.

I think Skeleton Key is coming out at the end of the month. Perhaps a Pepper one again this year?

I don’t know if you can find this but I once had one from MilleVertus called Poivrote, which was quite good as I recall.

I stopped in at Stonehooker in Port Credit on the weekend. They had close to 20 different beers in the cooler. :o

One is Spicy Raspberry 2.0 Saison. The description on the can says:

Our Steampunk Saison base has been kicked up a notch with delicious red raspberry and spicy Mexican chiles (sic) to give you a unique blend of fruit and heat. The heat has been kicked up a notch with the addition of Habanero peppers.

Hah! Unfortunately I like to drink more than I like to eat. My problem, I know. :crawls off to corner:

Last years version of this was actually quite heavy in the habanero. I could see it really turning alot of people off, if they weren’t expecting as much heat as was in there. But it was a really tasty beer. I’ll be grabbing many more this year.
