As someone whose job is to find new, trendy things and write about them, I think I can safely say that pickles are A Thing.
Which is how we got this new collaboration between Texas-based Best Maid Pickles and Martin House Brewing Company.
Yep. There are no infusions or blend of herbs meant to mimic the Best Maid Pickle flavor. It's just the actual brine mixed right in there.
Best Maid Pickles are also releasing a new "Beer Pickle" which uses coriander and lemon to create a brine that tastes like the Salty Lady Sour Gose Martin House used to make their pickly beer.
Sadly, the beer will only be available in Texas and can't be shipped elsewhere. It's also a limited time offering, though they've hinted at plans to make it an annual feature.
But if it's popular, I wouldn't be surprised if other brewers take note.
