Bubble Gum-Flavored Beer

August 14, 2019

The 1980s are alive and well in the 2010s thanks to companies continuing to connect with our nostalgia.  Blue Point Brewing Company thinks they've got a winner with their new bubble gum-flavored IPA. Bubble Brain, smells like Bazooka Joe but tastes more like a less-sweet fruity brew, with a tart and bitter finish. Even those who aren’t keen on IPAs might like it, as the deep rose-hued drink looks like wine and doesn’t taste as hoppy as some IPAs and pale ales. To give the beer an added throwback vibe, Bubble Brain's label was designed by Brent Engstrom, the illustrator of Garbage Pail Kids. According to the beer review site Untapped, some drinkers have described the 6.5 percent ABV Bubble Brain as “weird,” “wild,” and “tastes just like bubble gum.” The small batch brew is available at stores.
