Second Beer of Christmas 2019: Upland Brewing Prim

Prim bottle and label

On the Second Day of Christmas, my brewer gave to me... Upland Brewing Prim!

Upland Brewing Prim

Perhaps made famous in Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” plum pudding has graced many tables during the holiday season. Technically, there are no plums in the traditional pudding, but no matter. You should forgo this meat and dried fruit concoction for a delicious beer with actual plums.

Upland Brewing Company’s Prim is a little sweet and savory with bright tart plum flavor up front with a subtle savory and spicy finish courtesy of cardamom. The beer pairs well with rich holiday dishes such as roasted duck and plum sauce.

The Beer

Prim was inspired by blending the names of the two main ingredients, plum and cardamom. This sour ale uses Basis as the base beer, adding whole plums to capture the sweet fruit flavor and tartness of the skins, and the incredibly aromatic cardamom. Prim is aged in wine barrels for 4-6 months, further intensifying the complex flavors of this brew. It’s tart, fruity, herbaceous, and very refreshing.

The ABV is 6%.
