Flower essences are common in beauty products and perfumes - but beer?
Two master beer-makers have teamed up to create a special flower-induced brew for Savor, the Brewer's Association annual beer and food pairing event.
Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione and Boston Beer founder Jim Koch collaborated to create the beer, called Savor Flowers.
It is made with rosewater, dried lavender, hibiscus, jasmine and rosebuds. The beer also was aged in the same bourbon barrel that Koch used to age the first batch of Samuel Adams Triple Bock in 1993.
"Sam and I had a great time gathering those ingredients, and I am excited to collaborate with such an innovative brewer on this beer for Savor,"Koch said in a prepared statement.
"Jim is the godfather of craft beer, and he's got unbelievable ideas about what beer can be, along with the knowledge and palate to make those crazy beer dreams come true," Calagione added.
Savor Flowers is only available for attendees of Savor, which is already sold out.
No matter what type of beer, wine or other beverage you decide to pair with a meal, having fresh flowers, such as a spring flowers bouquet, on the table can add beauty and fragrance to your environment.
