Ask any Sour-sippin’ Seattleite why they besiege Urban Family’s taproom with every release, and they’ll tell you: it’s because this crew treats every fruity beer like it’s the Nectar of the Gods.
Not just that, but they brew in such tiny batches that if you don’t grab your cans fast enough, you may not ever get a taste!
That’s why I made sure to get there early when I heard they were dropping a new batch of Strawbarb. The stash I managed to squirrel away for Direct.Beer contains the only cans of this Sour Ale leaving Washington!
Brewed with real strawberries and rhubarb, this tangy quencher clocks in at an easy-going 6% ABV and brims with aromas of jammy fruit and lip-smacking tartness. If its opaque, rouge pour isn’t enough to draw you in, wait until you catch a whiff.
Pop the top, and it's like strolling through sun-ripened strawberry fields (forever) while eating a scoop of delicately sweet, rhubarb sorbet!
I could gab all day about how the succulent strawberry pie-filling flavor mingles with the lip-pursing rhubarb for a boozy fruit smoothie experience. But, you’ll have to taste it for yourself to see why fans like @beercam are gushing over Strawbarb as “one of my favorite fruit beers I've ever had.”
