Avocado, one of the most popular fruits around the world, has become an innovative ingredient for beer making. Avocado beer could become a new trend as it is 100% vegan and is ideal to meet the wishes of millennials.
Avocado is not used exclusively for flavoring the beer as its pulp is used in the fermentation process. This fruit, in addition to enriching the aromas and flavors of beer, gives the drink a very special creamy texture.
The process to make avocado beer
There are different types of avocado beer and the recipe to make varies by manufacturer. Some manufacturers only use the avocado in the fermentation process and others combine it with other ingredients, such as lime and cilantro, for example, which results in a more Mexican flavor. The result of this type of drink resembles guacamole.
For lovers of darker beers, some brewers have combined a more roasted and concentrated malt with avocado pulp, creating a product that completely resembles a stout beer. The flavor is stronger and it's impossible not to notice this exotic fruit's creamy texture and aroma in this type of beer.
