Sparkale is a sparkling rosé ale with apples, peach, cranberry & cherry, for a light, fruity, tart flavor and a huge “sparkle factor”.
“We’ve learned a lot about using fruit in our brews—from ‘Hell or High Watermelon,’ to ‘Blood Orange Brew Free! or Die IPA,’ and we love the refreshing quality that fruit can bring to new styles of beer. Sparkale is our latest adventure, and we’re so excited to offer a completely different type of beer that will quench your thirst and delight your taste buds any time of year,” says Nico Freccia, Co-Founder.
Coming in at a reasonable 5.5% alcohol with no bitterness, Sparkale is a bit of a departure from 21st Amendment’s staple of bold, West Coast-style IPAs. It is also lower in calories than 21A’s regular beers and gluten-reduced for a flavor that’s as much like a cider (without actually being one) as you can find.
“The one fruit juice we really wanted to include was cherries. Not only does it add to the unique color and flavor of the beer, but it’s also a nod to the history of San Leandro, the home of our brewery, where cherry orchards once thrived,” says Co-Founder and Brewmaster, Shaun O’Sullivan.
