Fruitfizz is dry hopped with real fruit, and comes in three different flavors of variety packs: grapefruit, lemon lime, and orange zest (my personal favorite). It is also now available on tap at the Reuben’s Brews taproom in Ballard. The gluten-free beverage is only 100 calories, with 0 added sugar, and 5% ABV.
“Innovation is the heart of our brewery, and Fruitfizz is the result of a lot of experimentation and exploration by our brewing team,” said Adam Robbings, Co-Founder of Reuben’s Brews. “There’s a lot of Hard Seltzer in the market today, but with Fruitfizz we believe you’ll taste the same balance and drinkability that’s the hallmark of everything we brew at Reuben’s.”
What makes Fruitfizz even better is that one percent of all proceeds will help fund the Reuben’s Brews Foundation. Led by Co-Founder Grace Robbings, the Reuben’s Brews Foundation supports the work of several community partners in education, environment, arts, human rights, animal rights, health, and social justice.
“Fruitfizz is a great example of our mission to ‘Pour Delight’ for our community,” said Grace Robbings. “And as the Foundation has proven, pouring delight can extend beyond what’s poured in the pint glass. The funds generated by Fruitfizz will be a huge boost for the work the Foundation is doing in the PNW and beyond.”
Adam and Grace Robbings opened Reuben’s Brews in 2012, after an award-winning homebrewing career, naming the brewery after their first child, Reuben. At their family-owned brewery, they design each beer with intention. From their every day favorite beers to innovative new releases, they will certainly help you grow your love of beer. Matt Lutton, who leads Marketing for Reuben’s Brews, informed me that they brewed 180 beers last year alone.
Reuben’s Brews is the most awarded brewery in Washington state, with 275 medals to date. They have been wildly successful, and now have three tasting rooms open to the public. The Barrel House, which is both a tasting room and a wild ale facility, opened most recently just a few doors up from The Taproom in Ballard. The Barrel House is open from Thursday to Sunday, and reservations are available. The Taproom is open daily.
