Although Halloween has come and gone, our sweet tooths are still highly active and we couldn’t be more stoked to share December’s Pie and Brew pairing. For those of you familiar, Pie:30 has made a serious name for itself in the edibles scene with their solventless and craft beer-infused hand pies over the past few years. I mean, how can you go wrong when you combine high-end concentrates, mouth-watering brews, and tasty homemade recipes.
The magic all starts in the kitchen, where Megan handcrafts each pie and makes sure there is love baked into every bite. In the past, this killer brand has used beers from breweries such as local favorites like Claim 52 and Oakshire Brewing, as well as sought-after cans like 450 North and RAR. To make these pies a match made in heaven, they source only the most exquisite hash rosin that Oregon has to offer, from companies such as One Handed Hash and Tree City Solventless.
For this feature, though, we are showcasing the almighty Boo Berry Pie, infused with High Pressure Concentrates and Great Notion’s legendary Boo Berry Muffin. Not to be confused with the Blueberry Muffin from Great Notion, the Boo Berry beer has an insane amount of Boo Berry cereal loaded into the brew. Cracking open a can reveals notes of Entenmann’s blueberry muffins matched with a bitter yet tart and balancing blueberry profile. Each sip brings more of the sweet sugary cereal we all love so much, followed by one of Great Notion’s classic beer bases. Attention to detail is a huge facet of their company and it’s beyond apparent, as each pie is drizzled with a flavorful glaze and topped with a handful of colorful cereal.
Be prepared to cancel your afternoon plans, as these potent and strong pies pack a whopping 150mg each. Once you finish eating one, good luck stopping. Regardless of whether these pies were infused with Cannabis or not, I would still enjoy them just as much. The blueberry filling was divine and incredibly delicious. Even with a higher edible tolerance, half of a pie had me floating away on a cloud and happily passing out on my couch, waking up blissfully confused.
Bringing the two together, the sweetness from the pie and the tartness from the beer provide a very balanced pairing. We highly suggest that you all get your hands on some of their goodies ASAP, but in the time being, be sure to stay up to date with Pie:30’s Instagram page for all new flavor releases! Keep an eye out for their full-size holiday pies as well!
