Recipe: Eik & Tid Cerasus

Exclusive to subscribers

This recipe is for a raw – not boiling – fermented beer with a distinctive kveik and later infused with lots of sour cherries. Eik & Tid co-founder and brewer Amund Polden Arnesen calls it “a beer to capture the experience of eating berries fresh from the vine.”
