University of New Hampshire’s new brew: Strawberry Milkman

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — A partnership between the experimental agriculture and beer brewing programs at the University of New Hampshire has produced another brew.

Strawberry Milkman is the third beer to be developed as part of the partnership between the university’s brewing science program and the New Hampshire Agriculture Experiment Station. It’s described as a sweet, cloudy IPA, and is made using strawberries developed for optimal production in New England using advanced genetic techniques. The beer also includes fruit from a multi-year research project that involves growing strawberries in tunnels to extend the growing season.

The National Brewers Association estimates that the New Hampshire’s roughly 60 craft breweries than 100,000 barrels of craft beer annually.
