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.
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?
