Franklin Institute unleashes horchata beer
If you like unusual or out-of-the-box brews you might want to check out tonight’s Science After Hours at Franklin Institute.
For the first time in Philly, the group “Brewers Unleashed” will present their collection of limited-release, rare beers that include among others a Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Ryewine aged on Sichuan Peppercorns, and the recently released Cinnamon Horchata Ale, inspired by the traditional Latin American rice milk and cinnamon beverage.
Tickets are $17 and can be purchased through the Franklin Institute website. Complimentary beer samples will be served, as well as giveaways, ingredient exploration and a conversation with members of the brewing team.
