This month in the R and D department we are developing new blends based on Europe. The age old question of are tomatoes a fruit or vegetable? Technically, they are both. Botanically, tomatoes are a fruit with seeds that flower. Tomatoes are also considered a culinary vegetable, as it has lower sugar content than other fruits. Tomatoes are well suited for drinks and cocktails because they are nicely balanced between sweet and acid. Shana has developed another two new Lemon Tomato Shandy drinks to highlight her new blend.

The history of the tomato beer is disputed some saying it was a Midwest hunting tradition. Others saying that its origin start was in Mexico and is a version of the Michelada. Whatever the start of this mixing beer with tomato it’s clear that this blending is here to stay.
