Tepache is a traditional Mexican fermented drink made from the peel and the rind of pineapples, and is sweetened with piloncillo sugar, seasoned with cinnamon, and served cold. Though Tepache is fermented for several days, the wild cultures of yeast and bacteria on the pineapple skins donít create very much alcohol and the resulting drink is enjoyed by all ages in South America.
We have taken this concept and created a strictly grown up version, a spiced pineapple beer. Our Tepache is a light brown beer with a grain bill that includes traditional Mexican maize. Itís tart and funky from our own wild yeast cultures, and is spiced with cinnamon and cloves, yet finishes with a residual sweetness from pineapple and a touch of lactose.
Perfect as a refreshing summer drink or as a mixer with Tequila (like any good Tepache) and excellent with Mexican food.
