Pear and Rum Beer Delight

Pear and Rum Beer Delight

November is the perfect time to start thinking about fun and festive holiday cocktails. Today I am sharing a seasonal inspired recipe that uses fresh pears and a pear beer. This beer cocktail represents fall and winter flavors including pears, cloves and vanilla. I used spiced rum to spice it up a little more but it does not overpower the delicate pear flavor.


The pear beer is from Widmer Brothers Brewing and is based in Portland, Oregon. Krystal Pear Wheat beer is an interpretation of Krystal Weizen Style of beer. It has flavors of a semi dry cider with hints of pear and is brewed with Oregon Pears. The Krystal Pear beer has malts of pale and wheat as well as hops of alchemy and mosaic. It has an IBU of 12 and a ABV of 5.8%. Mix up this seasonal cocktail and toast to a festive holiday season!
