Ramen-Flavored Beer? Cup O Beer Is A Thing Now
For being a really cheap way to eat, ramen is actually very popular from college students all the way to full blown foodies! With limitless possibilities with the noodles people have taken the brand to crazy places. High end restaurants to a Pringles flavor and now a beer can be added to that list.
The Collective Brewing Project in Fort Worth, Texas has introduced a new beer that’s made from Ramen and not just one packet but 55 lbs of ramen noodles. The brew also includes Ginger, Lime, Lemongrass, Coriander, and a Seaweed-cured Sea Salt. They’re calling it Cup O Beer and it’s an unfiltered wheat beer that has a light tart taste. They’re pricing the new beer at $7 a bottle.
Coming this Saturday, June 10 we'll be releasing bottles of our ramen beer, Cup O' Beer. We brew this Gose with 55 pounds of ramen noodles and also throw in Ginger, Lime, Lemongrass, Coriander, and a Seaweed-cured Sea Salt. 1200 500ml bottles were made and will be available for $7 per, no limit. Club members can purchase their bottles early starting Wednesday. . . . #RamenBeer #Ramen #TheCollectiveBrewingProject #BottleRelease #SourBeer #Gose #Party
While the beer in only available at the Collective Beer Project Taproom and maybe a few places around Texas, it’s growing popularity may mean another batch and wider distribution. What are your thoughts on a salty beer?
Former starving college kids, rejoice: @cbpfortworth has made a beer with ramen noodles. Additions of lime zest, ginger, coriander, lemongrass and seaweed-cured sea salt give the gose a briny, limey kick, but the starchy noodles pack the real dorm room nostalgia. Just don’t let the RA catch you drinking it.
