Ellicottville Brewing Company and Sprague’s Maple Farms have released their Blueberry Maple Pancake beer (7% ABV) for a third year. Reminiscent of a pancake breakfast, this wheat ale is packed with locally made maple syrup and fresh blueberries. Ellicottville Brewing makes one of the best Blueberry Wheat beers and many would argue that Sprague’s has the best pancakes in the Southern Tier. Life does not get sweeter than this collaboration brew.

“It has been a pleasure to do business with Ellicottville. I never imagined seeing our syrup in beer until recently. Now today, you see syrup in many applications. We take pure water generated in our syrup production and put into bottled water. It is great to see the development within the maple industry” says Randy Sprague, owner and operator of Sprague’s Maple Farms.

“Both products are made in Cattaraugus County which makes this special as we try to help each other out to generate tourism” says Peter Kreinheder, owner of Ellicottville Brewing. “Randy has 1,000 acres of Maple trees and produces tens of thousands of gallons of syrup each year. We used the maple syrup from the 2020 season as we brew Blueberry Maple Pancake to kick off the maple season. The maple syrup compliments the blueberry beer and produces a subtle maple flavor.”

Now available across the Ellicottville Brewing distribution network in 6-pack, 12-ounce bottles and 4-pack, 16-ounce cans, in select areas. You can find this specialty brew at a craft beer store near you and on tap at Ellicottville Brewing pubs and Sprague’s Maple Farms. Both establishments are fortunate to have remained open through these times and look forward to serving you a Blueberry Maple Pancake.
