30 Beer Flavor Innovations

From Crowdsourced Beer Flavors to Beer-Inspired Cake Desserts

— November 7, 2020 — Lifestyle
These beer flavor innovations range from crowdsourced beer flavors to beer-inspired cake desserts.

Phase Three Brewing Company and Affy Tapple's A Bushel of Apples beer stands out and "perfectly captures the aroma and flavor of an Affy Tapple Original Peanut Caramel Apple." The beer is a classic blonde ale that is fused with "apple juice, peanuts and Affy Tapple," creating an indulgent and tasty final product.

Hokkaido Brewing's fruit beer range is another notable example, highlighting ingredients native to the brewery's Japanese roots. Its best sellers include a Yuzu Lager, a Melon Ale, a Yamanashi-infused Peach White Ale, a Honey Apple Ale and more.

Examples outside of the beverage space include a Trader Joe’s ale-infused honey mustard that consists of a honey mustard base and California-sourced craft ale. The product speaks to beer's versatility as a cooking, seasoning and condiment ingredient and can be enjoyed year-round.
