Perrin Brewing Company (Comstock Park, Michigan) has officially announced that it will kick off its 2020 Side Hustle Series with the release of Carrot Cake Cream Ale in late January.
Supported by a base featuring “a wide variety of specialty malts for a rich cake flavor and malty backbone,” Carrot Cake Cream Ale is an indulgent Cream Ale that was “blended with pineapple, lactose and three hundred pounds of real carrots.” To ensure that they captured the full carrot cake experience, Perrin Brewing went the extra mile by adding ” seven moist, decadent carrot cakes from Arnie’s Bakery . . . to the mash to lend Carrot Cake Cream Ale a delectable dose of authentic, locally-baked cake flavor” (the added sheet cakes “were made with fresh shredded carrots, crushed pineapple, raisins, cake flour and eggs, and topped with whipped cream cheese icing.) Weighing in at 5.8% ABV, Carrot Cake Cream Ale is just like pouring up “a slice of sweet and creamy carrot cake.”
“Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. With our award-winning carrot cake and Perrin’s excellent brewing talents we know you’ll love this new Side Hustle release. Working with the good, honest, and passionate people at another local business makes it fun to collaborate and create together!”
– Jimmy and Arne Fahlen of Arnie’s Bakery
