There are those, myself included, who will tell you that dessert is the best part of any meal, whether it be cookies, cake, ice cream and, of course, pie. Count Resurgence Brewing among that group as well, who want to satisfy your sweet tooth with the advent of Pie Week, which officially gets underway down on Chicago Street on November 17.
Pie Week will feature the release of several pie-inspired beers, including four fruited sours – Key Lime Pie, Peach Pie, Blueberry Pie and Cherry Berry Pie, as well as a pair of fruited IPAs, Lemon Meringue and Strawberry Pie.
As far as a description for the beers, it’s easy. They taste like the pie they are name after.
“We created our Pie Sour Series with similar labels, as we have had good feedback on the initial releases and from Kegs and Eggs trials,” Resurgence Brewing Director of Brewery Operations Andrew Zach explained. “In 2021, we released Key Lime Pie, Peach Pie, Blueberry Pie and Cherry Berry Pie Sours and look to continue this series in 2022. We added a few IPA’s to this bunch in Lemon Meringue and Strawberry Pie to round out the pie options, as IPA’s and sours are our most popular styles.”
In addition to being available on tap, Cherry Berry Pie, Peach Pie and Blueberry Pie will be available in 4-pack cans to-go and the others will be available in crowlers.
“The idea really just came from people getting together for Thanksgiving week, and being able to enjoy great food, desserts (pie) and beers,” Zach said. “And the pie beers are just a fun way to be able to release some interesting to share with friends and family around the holidays. And, everyone loves Pie!!!”
