Fruit Beers

Outside of Belgium, fruit beers used to be the forgotten stepchild of the beer family. However, since 2010, the highest percentage of new beers brewed each year have been fruit beers. It’s now gone far beyond the purview of just tiny craft breweries; when “Big Beer” gets involved, it’s not just a little market niche anymore. Since any beer style can have fruit added to it, there are no limits to variety, and the beers entered in the competition this year were no exception. David Nuttall
