Jeremy Pryes, of Pryes Brewing, explained the inspiration behind the blueberry pastry ale.
“Blueberries are the star in this cobbler-style pastry ale. Real blueberry flavor is followed by a smooth vanilla finish. It’s simply delicious, and if you close your eyes, it’ll remind you of being at the fair, as it does for me,” Pryes said.READ MORE: Plow Bunyan: MnDOT Announces 'Name A Snowplow' Contest Winners
