Formerly brewed at Tröegs Brewing Company
Scratch #57 is brewed with two cocoa powder varieties and two kinds of berries to create a tart twist on a classic German style. Unfiltered and carbonated to a near-champagne finish, the beer is 7.9% ABV.
Fermented in our open-top fermentation room, the yeast gives hints of pepper and clove designed to complement the fruit flavors.
The cocoa powders add bitterness and some mouthfeel; the boysenberries and raspberries provide a tart, dry finish and the vanilla yields a subtle, sweet finish to the beer.
