Do you like a good pale ale? Do you like blueberries? Do you like vanilla? How about hibiscus? Now, what if you combine all of these things together and then can them? The result would be Kitty Kat Blues Pale Ale in cans from Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor).
Kitty Kat Blues is not a new beer. Black Raven has been making it for years, but this is the first time ever they’ve put it into cans. It’s also the first time I’ve seen a change in the recipe. Prior to using hibiscus, Kitty Kat Blues got some of it’s unique and distinct flavor from the use of catnip in the recipe. Yes, catnip. I’m not certain why Black Raven has swapped out the catnip for the hibiscus. The photo for the can release event on Facebook even still uses the old label – which clearly shows catnip as an ingredient, but I’m curious to try this new iteration. Kitty Kat Blues in cans arrives this Friday, 3/16 at 3 pm.
