We can all use a little sunshine in our lives, right? Well, Wasatch Brewery is here to help. With summer sipping in mind, a Mexican-inspired ale called Guava Rosa is now available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans.
According to the Wasatch brewers, the 7.1% ABV Guava Rosa “was inspired by a trip south of the border to Guadalajara, Mexico, for a collaboration brew with award-winning brewery, Cerveza Loba, which recently celebrated its seventh anniversary. Brewers from Wasatch, Oskar Blues and Loba came together to create a special anniversary beer that targeted the flavors of a Mexican Chocolate Cake using locally-sourced ingredients like chocolate from Tabasco, along with Lima and Zapote Negro from the orchards surrounding Guadalajara.”
“Wasatch Brewmaster Jon Lee shopped at the local markets and was impressed by the quality of the indigenous ingredients, along with the flavors and spirit of the region. His favorite beer of the trip was the Loba Paraíso – one of Loba’s most popular beers. The Paraíso utilizes hundreds of pounds of fresh Guava from the same markets he had visited. As Jon enjoyed one of many Paraíso’s, he realized ‘the bright, tropical fruit flavors are so refreshing in the desert climate of Mexico, and would translate perfectly to the high desert for which Utah is known’.”
“Guava Rosa drinks like a cocktail but with the heart of a beer, and this is what I’ll be reaching for all Summer long,” said Lee.
