Fruit character ranges from mild to intense, and brewers can select from a long list of fruits for their desired beer flavor. Popular fruits include cherries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, apricots, peaches and pomegranates. Beers with fruits associated with herbs and/or spices, such as juniper berry and elderberry, may be classified in the Herbed/ Spiced Beer style. Porters and stouts may be classified as their base beer style rather than as a Fruit Beer, depending on the balance of flavors.
Drinking distilled spirits, beer, coolers, wine and other alcoholic beverages may increase cancer risk, and, during pregnancy, can cause birth defects.
