A Wisconsin brewer is following in the path of comic Drew Carey, with a twist.
Whereas Carey in his TV sit-com persona came up with Buzz Beer, a caffeine-laced brew, BluCreek Brewing has blended green tea into its new beer called Zen.
The India Pale Ale does not mask the taste of the healthful tea, which combines with fresh Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial hops in the English-style brew.
BluCreek, headquartered in Madison but with facilities in Black River Falls, previously marketed an ale made with fresh wild blueberries and a beer using Wisconsin ginseng.
Zen beer will be available in a few weeks at a suggested retail price of $7.50 to $8.50 a six-pack.
