Sixpoint Brewery Release!

Sixpoint Brewery has just announced the tenth edition in their Mad Scientists Series. It's called "Spruce Tip Ale". Here 's a little about the beer from their newsletter "The Sixer"..

"The tenth beer in this bi-monthly series is spiced with not only hops, but a distinct herb that can be foraged in the wild: tips from the spruce tree. We've fashioned our own spruce tip pale ale, that incorporates wild-foraged spruce tips from trees in Maine by one of our brewers. These bright, lemony, and tropical-tasting needles are bright green and much softer than the rest of the evergreen just at this time of year. They've been known to cure scurvy and to accentuate flavors as an herb, and here we're adding them to the boil of a pale ale along with Simcoe hops. Mad Scientists #10: Spruce Tip Ale is available on draught now.
