An organic and refreshing brew.
With the push for more organic foods and beverages, it is no surprise that the beer world would inevitably pick up on the trend. The first to capitalize on the organic lifestyle was Northern California’s Eel River Brewing Company. According to their website, Eel River was the first American brewery to be certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).
Their newest creation is the Acai Berry Wheat, a light-bodied wheat ale. What makes it USDA organic is that it is brewed with Brazilian Acai berries. Acai berries are extremely high in antioxidants and are said to be helpful in the fight against certain diseases and illnesses, not to mention contribute to anti-aging. Antioxidants help minimize the damage to our bodies done by free radicals, which are groups of electrons that essentially travel through our body and do harm along the way. The combination of the Acai berries and four other organic berries makes this brew extremely refreshing and dare we say, almost healthy. Coming in at 4.0% ABV you can throw back a few and get your daily dose of antioxidants.
