SOUR FRUIT ALE
Tropic Thunder is a joint effort between Dugges Brewery and nomadic brewer Brian Strumke of Stillwater Artisanal. Dugges brewed this sour ale with lactobacillus and let it ferment with plentiful mango, passion fruit and peach. Sweet!
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
