Traditionally, the Moscow Mule is a concoction that's made with vodka, ginger beer and lime, and Ballast Point's Moscow Mule Beer reinterprets the classic cocktail in the form of an ale.
After testing out a few cocktail-inspired brews and finding that the Moscow Mule version was a hit with both its own team and customers, the brewery decided to make it accessible to a greater number of consumers. The base of the beer that is used for this new product is said to be tart and tangy, which is built upon with lime zest and ginger.
James Murray, VP of brewing at Ballast Point says that "the flavor profile of this beer is really unique. It tastes just like a cocktail, but it’s in fact beer." As such, this unique hybrid beer appeals to cocktail fans and craft beer fans alike.
