Springtime in the Valley brings more oranges than any of us could possibly use, no matter how fond of mimosas we might be. Tempe brewer The Shop Beer Co. has an answer: make the ubiquitous citrus fruit the centerpiece of its latest Neonic release. A PHOENIX 2020 Best of the Valley honoree, the popular Neonic series finds head brewer Matthew Tattersall and crew dropping limited-edition fruited sours that deliciously mimic nostalgic flavors. A blueberry pie here, a raspberry lemonade there – or, in this case, a certain shopping mall refreshment made from whipped egg whites and orange juice. Available at Arcadia Premium, Tops Liquors and other craft beer stores.
