Reverend Nat’s Tepache

Neither beer nor cider, Reverend Nat’s traditional Mexican tepache is more like a low-alcohol pineapple wine. Costa Rican pineapples are partially fermented with spices for this surprising, sessionable brew with a complex sweetness. Drink it straight, blend it with beer, make it a mimosa, or add vanilla ice cream for a tepache float! 3.2% alcohol by volume (ABV)
