Prickly Pears Beer Debuts Today at Dock Street

Tonight at 4 p.m. Dock Street Brewing is debuting a new beer, Nino’s Prickly Pears. The beer is inspired by a recent trip to Sicily by Dock Street owner Rosemarie Certo. While there, Sicilian born Certo enjoyed figs, grapes, olives, pistachios and of course, fichi d’india (prickly pears).

The beer is a ruby red, biere de garde style created by brewer Scott Morrison. Look for notes of kiwi, raspberry and bubblegum notes if you want to treat this beer like a wine.

Bartenders are also mixing a Prickly Pear beer cocktail for the event tonight.

Look for Nino’s Prickly Pears this week and beyond at Dock Street as well as at select beer bar around town.
