The Collective Brewing Project Gives us Ramen Noodle Beer
You were either starving in college, or snacking in the Army, when you were first introduced to ramen noodles. Well, now you can reminisce all about it over a Cup O' Beer.
Up there in damn near Oklahoma, or what others would call Fort Worth, The Collective Brewing Project has brewed a flavor out of the noodles you either love or hate.
Houston Chronicle is reporting that Cup O' Beer, which is a sour Gose-Style brew, even has a label that rivals Cup O' Soup.
Former starving college kids, rejoice: @cbpfortworth has made a beer with ramen noodles. Additions of lime zest, ginger, coriander, lemongrass and seaweed-cured sea salt give the gose a briny, limey kick, but the starchy noodles pack the real dorm room nostalgia. Just don’t let the RA catch you drinking it.
Those that have "dared the rapids", as it were, say their pallet was penetrated (phrasing) with waves of lemongrass, lime, ginger, and coriander. Yep, a cup of ramen in a bottle.
Boozy blog Vinepair figured out, or were told, that 55 pounds of ramen noodles were actually used to make the beer. So that's like a dollar-and-a-half worth a ramen, right?
The going rate for a bottle is $7. Thank God for mark-up. I ain't gonna pay that much for a ramen beer.
If you feel the need to take out a loan and get a case of Cup O' Beer, have a good time. The rest of us will pop a top on a brew we like and pour it over some real ramen noodles.
You overcharge us, we'll McGyver a way around you.
