Fruit Beers

Fruit beers have often been looked down on by beer snobs. The truth is, they have been around as long as beer itself. They may have disappeared in North America until European imports and craft breweries brought them back to the market about 30 years ago, but they have been growing in popularity since. These beers can be total fruit bombs like radlers and shandys, or they may take on a subtler approach. This year’s Best in Class, Whistler Brewing’s Grapefruit Ale, reflects the latter, with an obvious fruit flavour that isn’t too forward, and an even balance between sweet and dry. David Nuttall
