Unique Aspect

Tepache is traditionally fermented for several days using the wild cultures of yeast and bacteria on the pineapple skins, the resulting drink don’t create very much alcohol and as a result is enjoyed by all ages in South America.

 We have taken this concept and created a strictly grown up version, a spiced pineapple beer. Our Tepache is a light brown beer with a grain bill that includes traditional Mexican maize. It’s tart and funky from our own wild yeast cultures, and is spiced with cinnamon and cloves, yet finishes with a residual sweetness from pineapple and a touch of lactose. Perfect as a refreshing summer drink or as a mixer with Tequila (like any good Tepache) and excellent with Mexican food.

Food Pairings

Southern America is the inspiration behind this beer, so it makes sense that Southern American food makes a perfect pairing at dinner. Chorizo sausage with refried beans on corn tacos is perfect. Add lime, sour cream and coriander to top it off. Spicy sausage compliments with the spices in the beer, refried beans are cut by the brisk acidity, lime provides a contrast to the earthy, fermented pineapple character.
