Brewer’s ‘Zen’ Beer Made With Green Tea

The latest green tea brew isn’t something from a tea pot ” but a beer bottle.

Wisconsin micro brewer BluCreek is coming out with a new beer called Zen. The idea is to give a brewski the supposed health benefits of green tea.

The brewery said the English-style India Pale Ale could be the first of its kind and has a subtle green tea flavor.

The beer will combine the flavors of fresh Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial hops combined with all-natural green tea, BluCreek said.

BluCreek Brewing has tried other unusual combinations before, including an ale made with fresh wild blueberries and a beer using Wisconsin ginseng.

Zen will be available in some markets this month — including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Florida and Ohio. It will sell for about $8 a six-pack.
