Pair O’ Dice Brewing is taking its most popular seasonal, Lucky Lucy Strawberry Blonde, year-round. A testament to the brewery’s focus on brewing with Florida’s native flora, this light-bodied blonde ale is brewed with hundreds of pounds of Plant City, Florida strawberries.
“Our Lucky Lucy pays homage to the Florida Strawberry Festival that I grew up going to as a little girl.” says Pair O’ Dice’s Co-founder, Julia Rosenthal. “It has a pleasant strawberry aroma on the nose and subtle tart fruit notes on the palate, all while still tasting like a “real” beer. Using Florida’s native flora has always been our primary focus at Pair O’ Dice. With the crops that are available to us in the Sunshine State there’s no reason to use extracts. You’ve heard of contracting hops. Well, we’ve contracted thousands of pounds of Florida strawberries so we can brew this beer year-round.”
The product specs are:
Style: Blonde Ale brewed with Strawberries
Malts: 2-Row, Caramel Malt, Vienna
