I spoke with Guy Friday night, and he tells me he has 20lbs of raspberries that he plans to use in a new beer….AND…he wants our suggestions. SO what should he brew?! OK readers….here’s our chance to suggest a beer to Guy. Be realistic, but let’s talk Raspberries. Guy plans to brew 1-barrel only….What should Guy brew with 20lbs of Raspberries? PLEASE COMMENT!!!!

A rasberry chocolate stout. it would probably be ready right around the time it's getting cooler and if it's still hot out you can pour some over your ice cream..... I've always been fond of the combination of rasberry and dark bitter chocolate.

I'll go out on the wild side...what about a raspberry flavored IPA or Pale Ale Atomic punk Raspberry IPA

I agree with the above comments. A raspberry stout sounds good. An atomic raspberry punk sounds even better, kind of along the lines of the now retired Founders Rubaeus. Anything but another raspberry wheat beer. The market is saturated with those. Raspberry Punk FTW!

I second the raspberry chocolate stout idea. I always thought that Weyerbacher's Rasberry Imperial Stout would have been great with chocolate. Also, the combination of Young's double chocolate and Lindeman's Framboise is incredible.

Southern Tier does a Raspberry Porter, which sounded great, but had too much raspberry for me and not enough porter. I still think it would be a great combination, but that Raspberry IPA idea is pretty interesting...

Leave the fruit to the wine-o's and breakfast cereal

Yes! Please do a Raspberry Imperial Chocolate Stout. Guy's Imperial Stout was his masterpiece, IMHO. I REALLY enjoyed that one.

Lots of interesting ideas. I'd agree that some of the Raspberry Porters I've tried haven't balanced well. I'll also admit I was expecting the Chocolate Raspberry Stout and Raspberry-IPA. I'm a sweet stout lover, so that sounds good, and as much as I'd say that IPA's play better with sweet than tart; I'm curious how that would taste. I'm also a huge fan of anything Guy adds to his wheat and I know that would be good as well. I guess my vote would be for a Guy Hagner interpretation of a raspberry brew. My initial thought was for some sort of Raspberry ESB...hasn't been done, should be a complimentary taste and sounded interesting....but then it hit me. With Fall on the horizon I started thinking what about Guys first beer?? Why not a Dark Lager with Raspberries. Consider my vote for One Guy ONE-Dark-Lager with Raspberries.

Ommegang did really well with Three Philosophers, so maybe brewing one raspberry flavored beer and a totally new beer and blending them... like a raspberry lambic-weizenbock, or a bourbon barrel aged imperial stout/raspberry chocolate stout etc...

I like the 3-philosophers style idea also.

What no suggestions for a Raspberry Lager or Pils? Vote for that!

How about a framboise-type of beer...something crisp!

I'd throw my vote in for a Raspberry Saison.
