The Drink 

Lost 40’s Strawberry Brunch Muffin ale, $6.50 per draft pour, $10.99 per four-pack

The Dish on The Drink 

Bloody Marys, mimosas, Irish coffees—all of them have long been brunch beverage staples. But this month, Lost 40 Brewing is set to add yet another option to the brunch canon in the form of the Strawberry Brunch Muffin ale. A companion to the previously released Blueberry Brunch Muffin, it’s just as delicious as you might imagine. Like the Blueberry beer, the Strawberry is brewed with vanilla, lemon zest and—no joke—milk sugar, which lends it a scrumptious pastry-inspired flavor profile. Grab a four-pack at the release party at Lost 40’s taproom on Sept. 23.
