US fast food restaurant chain, Hardee’s, has partnered with Nashville-based brewery Southern Grist to launch a limited-edition strawberry biscuit ale.
The biscuit beer is infused with 200 pounds of Hardee’s ‘Made from Scratch Biscuits’, incorporating hints of strawberry jam and buttermilk.
Hardee’s parent company CKE Restaurants said that the biscuit-infused beer “required months of planning and trial runs by Southern Grist to find the perfect mix of biscuits, strawberry puree, grain, hops, yeast and water”.
CKE Restaurants VP of global culinary innovation Owen Klein commented: “When we came up with the idea for a Hardee’s Biscuit Beer, only one brewery came to mind to bring the idea to life – Southern Grist. They approach brewing with the same mad scientist mentality that we use for our new menu launches and know how to deliver on flavour.”
He continued: “After a few rounds of testing, Southern Grist nailed it. An amazing crushable beer with subtle notes of fresh-baked biscuits, buttermilk, and strawberry jelly. All it took was a few hundred pounds of Made From Scratch Biscuits.”
