A belgium Wit with cranberries added.
With the holidays upon us, why not make a beer from a fruit that New Jersey is known for, cranberries. This beer is a Belgian Wit style with plenty of cranberry color and taste. As for the name, once again we turned to a special place in the area, “The Spy House” located right up the road in Port Monmouth for inspiration. This house like “Whipporwill Valley Road” has a special place in the historical and haunted hearts of many of the local residents. If you look closely on an autumn evening you may even see the figure of an American Patriot guarding the beaches awaiting the British troops arrival!
Cheese: Rich, creamy Brie creates a lively pairing as the warming spices provide a stark contrast to the deep, buttery notes in the cheese. Or, to contrast this beer style’s slight sweetness, pair with a tangy, fresh goat cheese. Looking for a brunch-like midday snack? Drizzle honey on goat cheese and top with walnuts to enhance the beer’s aromatic spice.
