Spreadable beer goes on sale

A company in Vermont has started selling beer jelly in a variety of different expressions including an Indian Pale Ale and an oatmeal stout.

As reported by Bloomberg, to make the jelly the beer is boiled with sugar and pectin then left to set in a jar.

Potlicker Kitchen in Vermont sells a range of spreadable beer, including an Indian Pale Ale, an oatmeal stout and an apricot ale.

According to Bloomberg, the dark brown stout is “heady with roasted, yeasty flavours and a lot fruitier than you’d expect”, and pairs well with brie and figs.

The IPA meanwhile, boasts notes of “grapefruit and tropical fruit” and works best with soft cheeses.

Finally, the apricot ale has the most “zing” and marries well with dark chocolate.

If you’re keen to pair your beer jelly with a beer, Bloomberg suggests a Belgian quadruple ale for the oatmeal stout jelly to bring out its fruitiness, while the IPA jelly and apricot ale jelly both apparently pair well with golden ales.
