Today's episode of A Quarter Century's countdown to the Twin Cities Food & Wine Show is a personal favorite.
Day Nine: Wild Blue
Wild Blue is a delicious, blueberry-flavored lager.
Unless, of course, the show organizers meant Wild Blue Yonder, a bluegrass band from Tennessee.
But I think we're on the right track with the lager.
As described on Wild Blue's website: "Wild Blue is a blueberry lager that fuses the juice of nature’s perfect fruit – blueberries – with premium American and German hops, two row and six-row barley malt and cereal grains."
Yes, blueberries are nature's perfect fruit.
The makers of the brew, Blue Dawg Brewing, pair all of the above with bulldogs. One is pictured playing kickball with a blueberry on the beer's label. The website is littered with puppy photos. They even disguise finding Wild Blue near you as "Yappy Hour."
I'm not sure if that's the most appetizing connection, but it's not up to me.
And picture of drooly dog aside, this beer is delish.
