Taste The Forbidden Dragon Fruit At Hardywood Today

Head over to Hardywood today Saturday October 4th at 2pm for the release of Forbidden. The beer was brewed in honor of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts’ exclusive U.S. showing of Forbidden City: Imperial Treasures From The Palace Museum, Beijing.

Hardywood Forbidden is a Belgian white ale integrated with red dragon fruit to produce a subtle and pleasant sweetness in the flavor and aroma. The dragon fruit amazingly changes the beer’s appearance to a bright pink color befitting of the rich culture of the Forbidden City. ABV 6.5%, 20 IBU.

Take a look this video detailing the idea behind this collaboration.
