‘Pops Lemon Pie’ Summer Dessert Sour Craft Beer.
Rollickin Gelato and Two Thumb Brewery, two Christchurch passionate businesses have joined forces to whip & brew a summer treat.
Releasing Canterbury Anniversary Day Friday 17th November. Cheers Christchurch!
Jed Joyce (Rollickin Gelato) & Alex Grimshaw (Two Thumb’s Brewer) worked together on taking one of Rollickin’s Summer Crowd's favourite gelato flavours – Pops Lemon Pie to recreate into a Dessert Sour Beer.
Our Pop's Lemon Pie Sour beer is brewed to be intentionally acidic or tart. Starting with a base of pilsner malt gives a light colour and a soft pastry flavour, then Lemon Drop hops provide the main citrus flavours and aromas. The addition of milk sugars into the brew helps to leave a sweetness and a rich creamy mouthfeel as they do not fully ferment. Two Thumb then used a kettle souring process, adding Lactobacillus bacteria (the same bacteria in yoghurt or probiotics), to drop the PH slightly to give the brew a sharpness but without being too mouth-puckering.
The beer is then fermented for 6-7 days before adding the final touches of real lemon, cinnamon and vanilla to fine-tune the taste, matching the Rollickin gelato.
