Pale Green Things

Who said you need hops to make a beer taste like oranges? Spruce Budd is brewed with spruce tips. In the spring, the forests of Oregon’s coast range are full of new growth. The pale green tips of Douglas fir and spruce trees have been eaten by native tribes for millennia. Their high in vitamin C, full of minerals, and taste great.

Spruce Budd is brewed in Fort George’s small Sweet Virginia brewery with only light pilsner malt and pounds of fresh foraged fir. The beer is amazing. It’s fresh and zippy and tastes nothing like a christmas tree. It’s floral and citrusy. Like orange blossoms. It’s bright. It’s sweet. It’s delicious.
