Blue Moon Drops Cinnamon Horchata Ale


Blue Moon attempts to bottle the spicy sweetness of horchata with their latest seasonal flavor: Cinnamon Horchata Ale. While word on the new beer remains under wraps, we suspect a roll-out closer to Fall. Apparently, the cinnamon-spiced ale comes from “brewmaster Keith Villa’s interpretation for a classic Mexican Horchata” and packs cinnamon, long-grain rice and a 5.5 percent ABV.

The boozy horchata will hit shelves as 12 oz bottle 6-packs. While we’re curious to find out how a horchata-flavored ale will fare with the masses — a stout seems more fitting for this originally creamy drink — we aren’t opposed to a milky-textured, sweet and spicy brew.
