Pairings: Bright & Boozy

Purple Obeah Flower by Evermore Foundations paired with Lemon Stick Sour Ale by Abbeywood Brewing.

The Tannins

Vice – Lemon Stick Sour Ale by Abbeywood Brewing

Brewed right here in Baltimore, Abbeywood is paying homage to the classic Baltimore dessert – the lemon stick. A sour ale brewed with lemon and peppermint comes together at 7.5% ABV, a bit higher than some comparable sour beers we have seen. This beer is not quite as thick as some of the smoothie-style sours we see on the market today. Perfect for a hot summer day in the city, hon!

The Terpenes

Purple Obeah Flower by Evermore Foundations

If you have been around the Maryland Cannabis market, chances are you have crossed paths with Purple Obeah. Cherry Pie x Tangie tap dance their way into this fruity combination where the citrusy Tangie terpenes really pop off. This is one strain that I feel your average Cannabis consumer could easily identify with a blindfold on 10 out of 10 times. These orange and purple buds are almost certain to give me a boost of positive energy every time I smoke them.

The Pairing

It was almost difficult to identify a beverage that could match the citrus level given off by the Purple Obeah, but we found it. The lemony notes of the beer combine beautifully with the strong Tangie smells and flavors given off by the flower. The sweetness of the peppermint combined with the underlying Cherry Pie terps also created a blend that made this pairing feel nothing short of perfect.
