Yards Poor Richards Tavern Spruce
From Yards Brewing – Initially brewed to commemorate Ben Franklin’s 300th birthday—not to mention his affinity for fine ales—Poor Richard’s Tavern Spruce™ is based on Franklin’s original recipe. It uses spruce tips and molasses as barley and hops were not readily available at the time.
Yards Brewing – Yards Poor Richards Tavern Spruce – 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. 5% abv.
Appearance: Pours a light brown that lets light through.
Aroma: Aquafresh, spruce.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied fizzy.
Overall: I loved this beer. While this isn’t a holiday themed beer, this beer, to me, captures the holiday season in a bottle better than most of the holiday offerings on the market. Very tasty!
