The Beer Fox says, “Fit for a king and full of sweetness, this apricot/ale blend enhances the full flavor of King Tut’s savory, summertime chicken dish. Change seasons by supplementing this dish with scalloped potatoes, a spinach-cheese casserole and cranberry sauce aux airelles.”

Did you know? Apricots were brought through the trade routes from Armenia to Italy, but did not become widely known throughout Europe until the 15th century. France, Algeria, and Spain have become famous for the Musk Apricot, and Auvergne also produces its much-prized species of apricot. Apricots are one of the most popular fruits used in patisserie - including sweet courses, tarts, compotes, jellies and confectionary.
