I missed this little gem last summer: Zen Beer.
Wisconsin micro brewer BluCreek is coming out with a new beer called Zen. The idea is to give a brewski the supposed health benefits of green tea.
The brewery said the English-style India Pale Ale could be the first of its kind and has a subtle green tea flavor.
The beer will combine the flavors of fresh Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial hops combined with all-natural green tea, BluCreek said.
Very fitting. I once wrote about Zen’s sister religion, Taoism, and beer: “[B]eer [is] a Taoist-like drink that enables the drinker to obtain a small amount of inebriation that shrinks the self and enables the objective goodness of things to shine through the soul.” I’d be inclined to say the same thing about Zen and beer.del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
