Fruit Beer Week

Fruit Beer WeekI’m a bit behind on Theme Week this month (August has been busy!) but I’ve been wanting to do a Fruit Beer Week for a while now (it makes for a good summertime topic), so I’ve decided to mix it up a bit this week: I have some new reviews to offer, and I’ll be re-running some older reviews of fruit beers—perhaps even ones you might not have seen.

Fruit beers are an interesting topic among beer geeks; in a way they’re kind of the bastard stepchildren of “real” beers (considering something like the BeerAdvocate Top 100 only has three fruit beers represented) but when one is done right, it can be really right.

Hopefully we’ll stumble across a few of those this week.


  1. Maybe it’s too late… but I would like to talk about the fruit beers from the North Taiwan Brewery (no official website, sorry)… I tried their Lychee beer when I travelled in Taipei and loved it. They have another two fruit beers: the honeydew melon beer and the pineapple beer. The brewery is a mini one and therefore the beer are available in inde cafes or by home delivery only…
