Edible Long Island - 10 Local Beers You Need to Drink This Fall

Edible Long Island recently asked us about our Montauk X Amber Waves Farm Raspberry Session Ale. Here's what our brewmaster had to say:

"We have a great relationship with Katie Baldwin and Amanda Merrow, the owners and farmers at Amber Waves in Amagansett, and we’ve been talking about collaborating for a while now. Their apprentice Katie Rose Leonard took the lead on this one and their fresh raspberries were harvested a few weeks ago and immediately frozen for us. I wanted to brew a beer that would highlight the raspberry characteristics, so we went with a similar recipe to our Montauk Session IPA —  primarily 2-row barley, with Magnum and Cascade hops. But rather than dry-hopping the beer, I introduced the raspberries post fermentation. We’ve never brewed this beer, so it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out! We’re expecting the raspberry to be subtle but present, and the beer crisp and refreshing overall. Using local ingredients makes this all the more fun. All of our spent grain actually goes to Amber Waves as compost and chicken feed, so it’s exciting to take this process full-circle." —  Eric Moss, co-owner and brewmaster
