Chelsea and Sarah had a few different favorite beers at the Festival. Chelsea loved the Belgian What-Up Apple-Weizen from Hopworks. It was all apples and wheat, like pie. The Strawberry Rhubarb Pie from Breakside Brewery — made with whole pies — reminded Chelsea of college. She said “this tastes like college.” I don’t know what that means. It was boozy and fruity, I guess.
The one they really loved though was a crazy mixture of Upright Gose and Bushwhacker Caramel Apple Cider. I didn’t get it at all. But those two could have sipped it all day. It was the cloudiest beer I have ever seen, like the wet stuff in apple pie. There was all sorts of apple in there and an interesting thick feel. Oh and there was caramel.
