Downtown Rochester Brewery Serving Purple Beer
Just when I thought I couldn't possibly love this place any more, they add purple beer to the menu!! Grand Rounds posted a picture of the beer and people flocked to get a pint. Their post said, "in tribute to your favorite MN born and bred rock star, our blonde ale is PURPLE today to kick off the #SUMMEROFPURPLE at down by the Riverside!"
Originally, it was going to be a one-day thing, but not surprisingly, people were very excited to grab themselves a refreshing purple beer. So now, it'll be available every Sunday throughout the summer until the Riverside concerts end. Maybe longer.
I asked Grand Rounds what people can expect when they order a purple beer. They told me they took their delicious flagship crisp and clean "Easy A MN Blonde Ale" and added a hint of purple coloring to it. "Easy A is our lightest beer, in which you will find notes of sweet banana, honeysuckle, and cracker, with a slightly floral finish. We add 30 pounds of local honey from The Bee Shed in Oronoco, MN as well." YUM!
Speaking of Grand Round, did you know the building is haunted? No lie, the owner shared with us all the details. Click here for more.
