The company said the beer is fermented with local honey and then cold conditioned with a “Front Porch Special” black tea blend from @piperandleaf and fresh lemon zest.”

They describe the taste as “delicious tea on the nose, a fresh citrus zing from 🍋, and the slightest residual sweetness from our favorite malt in the world from @rootshootmalting — Double Honey.”
