Carton Dune Fruit Release

  • Carton Brewing Company 6 E Washington Ave Atlantic Highlands, NJ, 07716 United States (map)

Carton Brewing's next small batch beer, Dune Fruit, will be released in the tasting room Sunday, June 21st.

While standing on Mount Mitchill, scanning our favorite local beaches, you can find paddles of the indigenous prickly pear cactus underfoot.  Once you learn how to peel them (being careful of the less obvious finer thorns), there is a pleasing spring legume sweetness to be found.  With Dune Fruit we add the meat of prickly pear paddles to a simply soured wheat beer to draw out their subtle vegetable sweetness and cut their viscidity with some acid.  A delicate balance of vegetal and brightness in the form of an unassuming sour.  Drink Dune Fruit because it’s the top of the summer and it’s time to shift that palate back to the sand.
