Beer flights in TacomaShaun Kalis and Devin Benware began brewing their Ruse Brewing beers on a big system before Ruse was a thing. When not brewing for Tomas Sluiter at Culmination Brewing, whom they originally worked under at the Old Market Pub & Brewery in Multnomah Village, they used Tom’s tanks to make their Ruse beer. Kalis and Benware moved into their big southeast Portland facility a little over two years ago. These guys are experts of adjunct ingredients and yeasty expressionism, and Peaks & Pints is thrilled to offer another to-go Ruse beer flight, Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Ruse Brewing On The Fly.

This raspberry lemonade inspired ale is brewed with tons of creamy wheat and conditioned on humongous amounts of raspberry and lemon. It’s fruity. It’s tart. It’s zippy. It tastes just like raspberry lemonade.
