Splendid Berry Brut

May 16, 2019

This week Kayla, Walt, Dan and Mark taste a beer perfect for pairing with Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream, our new Splendid Berry Brut! In Ohio, summer means three things: Beer, Ice Cream, and Strawberries. Once again we’ve teamed up with Columbus Ice Cream Champions, Jeni’s, to brew up the perfect, easy-sipping complement to their annual Strawberry Jam. The early summer bash that celebrates the sunshine-minded makers, brewers, artists, lovers, and musicians of Central Ohio. Splendid is an effervescently dry, brut beer brewed to showcase fresh berries and the sweet lemon aroma of Lemondrop hops. Whichever variety of pint you prefer, summer is here!
