|Ryan Brooks shows off SouthNorte's recent Great American Beer Fest competition medal|
SouthNorte Beer Co.received a bronze medal in the specialty beer-style category for its Agavemente at the recent 2017 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition. Agavemente is a refreshing lager brewed with agave for a dry, crisp finish.
After fermentation, hibiscus is added to bring out a beautiful, dark pink hue, as well as a distinct fruity, tea-like flavor. “Agavemente is my play on a traditional jamaica agua fresca—it’s refreshing with just a hint of hibiscus complexity. We served it at the festival and it was awesome to see how much people were enjoying this beer,” says SouthNorte brewer Ryan Brooks.
