Two Lights - Alagash Brewing Company
What's this? It is a craft beer that combines beer with a little effervescence from sparkling wine. And Nat discovered it recently and shared a little bit with me earlier this year. From the Allagash Brewing Company site:
Two Lights is an ode to two of the more refreshing drinks of summer: cold beer and sparkling wine. While brewing this beer, we add sauvignon blanc must—the freshly pressed juice of the grapes. Then we ferment it with both lager and champagne yeast to create a tart, crisp, and dry profile. The finished beer’s aromas of pear, grape, and light hops pair with a flavor profile that’s a mix of tropical fruit and the snappy spritz of a freshly picked grape. We suggest sipping Two Lights by a water source too large to see across.
BeerAdvocate has it at 3.91 out of 5.00, but I think that's beer snobbery at play. Like many of you, my introduction to Allagash Brewing Co was through their White beer - which BA has at 4.16.
