Carrot Cake Cream Ale (5.8% ABV), Perrin’s first Side Hustle Series release of 2020, debuts at the Perrin Pub on draft and in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans on January 25th. Distribution throughout the state of Michigan to follow.
Pour out a slice of sweet and creamy Carrot Cake. Blended with pineapple, lactose, and three hundred pounds of real carrots, Carrot Cake Cream Ale is brewed with a wide variety of specialty malts for a rich cake flavor and malty backbone.
Seven moist, decadents carrot cakes from Arnies Bakery were added to the mash to lend Carrot Cake Cream Ale a delectable dose of authentic, locally baked flavor. The sheet cakes were made with freshly shredded carrots, crushed pineapple, raisins, cake flour, and eggs, and topped with whipped cream cheese icing on top.
Jimmy and Arne Fahlen of Arnies made this statement about their partnership with Perrin, “Excellence is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well. With our award-winning carrot caked and Perrin’s excellent brewing talents, we know you’ll love this Side Hustle release. Working with good, honest, and passionate people at another local business makes it fun to collaborate and create together with.”
The folks at family-owned Arnie’s Bakery have been creating delicious treats in Grand Rapids since 1905.
Perrin will release a new Side Hustle Series every other month for statewide distribution. The Side Hustles series allows Perrin’s brewers to creatively explore ingredients and techniques, and provide Michigan’s craft lovers with innovative new flavors.
With Carrot Cake Cream Ale, you can have your cake and drink it too. Get your hands on it at the Perrin Pub start January 25, or pick up a 6-pack at your local Michigan craft beer cellar.
