Tea and beer. Two drinks that are close to our hearts at Elmwood, not specifically because we drink them in vast quantities, but because we’re lucky enough to have created a successful brand out of each (Make Mine A Builders in 2007 and Good Cheer Beer in 2009 – do pick some up if you get the chance!).
However, the smart folk over at Hop Theory in the US have come up with a novel way of combining the two, creating quite possibly the world’s first ‘beer bags’. You still need to start with something more interesting than water, but dunking a sachet into your glass for a couple of minutes will turn the most insipid light ale into a superior craft ale, at a fraction of the price.
Each bag can be used to infuse up to four pints with a delicate bouquet of cascade hops, orange peel and coriander seeds. And now that they’ve successfully completed the first round of their Kickstarter campaign (raising $30,000), they’re looking to add more sachets to the range including pumpkin, peach and double IPA.
Anyone fancy a brew?
