I got a chance to try this unusual blend at Brickstore Pub, in Decatur.

This is my first experience with the combination of beer and tea, but not my first encounter with tea and alcohol. This brew was unique. It tasted like a smooth and expensive beer, for lack of better words, mixed with the clean taste of juniper. The black tea and chai flavors were in the finish, and the bitterness of tea was there, but mild. The ginger and spices give it a tiny bit of warmth at the end, but you sort of have to feel for it. I would recommend it, and not just for the novelty of it. It was genuinely good, if not a little unfamiliar.

Having just recently dissected a dogfish in my Ichthyology lab, I think I can safely say that its head isn’t something I’d want in my beer OR my tea! ;P

Just curious, where did you happen to purchase this from? Also, you mentioned you had encountered tea and alcohol?

This is right up my alley. I wonder if it’s sold in bottles at all? I am very familiar with Dogfish and I would love it if this was available nationally!

Dogfish makes some great beer, never thought to try and combine my the two drinks (beer and tea) although I like the idea a lot!

@cristina I got it at The Brickstore Pub in Decatur, GA. And yeah, I’ve had a few different sweet tea vodkas before this, but not beer.

@Alannah Actually, I got it in a bottle. But it was one of those big ones, like a wine bottle, so I got a few glasses. :9

Alannah

Interesting, I’ll have to keep my eye out for it in stores around here! I won’t get my hopes up though. ;)

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, chai, and pretty much any black tea from Fujian, China. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, lychee, osmanthus, cucumber, sage, lavender, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
