Beer Laced with Wine? I’m not sold.

Straight out of Spain, the same country that brought us the porron (an entirely different way to imbibe in vino), comes the first beer actually laced with wine.

According to the above linked article from the Chicago Tribune, the makers of Inedit wine-beer, Estrella Damm, developed this brew because of “the belief that there was a need for a beer that could complement a dining experience.”

… I don’t know about you, but I find a plethora of amazing beers—without wine added— that compliment my meals. Case in point: my grilled foods and beer pairing list. In my honest opinion, as a beer, liquor and wine drinker, I think they might be pushing it here.

What do you think?

    I’ve actually recently had a wine inspired beer at the Barley Yards Brewing Company at Seneca lake in the NY Finger lakes. It was a Riesling Ale that had riesling Juice blended with an American wheat beer. Although not as complex as the typical beers that I like, it seemed like a great Summer porch beer.
