VANCOUVER, BC – R&B Brewing has looked toward the sunny south to get inspiration for a new uniquely flavoured seasonal brew.
Birra Fresca Cucumber Mint IPA is named after agua fresca (“fresh water”), flavoured water and sugar drinks that are found throughout Mexico and other Central American and Caribbean countries. One popular version contains cucumber and mint, and according to the brewery, “the thought was that the cucumber mint IPA would be just as refreshing, if not more so.”
Based on R&B’s Hoppelganger IPA, Birra Fresca is a 6% abv and 50 IBU IPA made using more than 200 organic cucumbers that were sourced locally along with the mint.
Birra Fresca went on sale last Friday at the R&B retail store, and is limited to 80 cases of 12 x 650 ml bottles.
