How to Make It

Add the syrup and orange juice to the bottom of a wine, beer, or champagne glass. Top off with the cold beer and enjoy.

To make the syrup, combine all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir well and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until the fruits release their juices and a syrup has formed in the pan. Using a sieve or cheesecloth, strain out the liquid. Store in a mason jar or squeeze bottle and refrigerate for up to two weeks.

Why We Like It

People get together early on Sundays for all kinds of things. Some go to church, some go to brunch, and this time of year, others gather around the TV to watch Sunday football. This fruity beermosa — made with a late-summer fruit syrup, orange juice, and a farmhouse ale — would work well in two of those three scenarios.

The syrup requires a little work on your part, but it really adds to the drink and will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks. Depending on the juiciness of your fruit, you should get at least two cups of of syrup, maybe more.

I used Boulevard Brewing Company’s Tank 7, a farmhouse ale with strong Belgian yeast notes and hints of grapefruit hoppiness that play nicely with the other fruit flavors for this Beermosa. But if you can’t find that in your area, any quality farmhouse ale will do.
