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. We have taken this ancient recipe and adapted it into making a beer!
Tepache is traditionally fermented for several days using the wild cultures of yeast and bacteria on the pineapple skins, the resulting drink doesn’t create very much alcohol and as a result, 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. It’s 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.
