Event Details

The Bramble is a classic cocktail first created by Dick Bradsell, who also famously invented the Espresso Martini. Named after the bush that blackberries grow on, Bradsell crafted the first bramble with a blackberry liqueur, gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and a creme de mure that was part gin sour.

Over the years, the Bramble has been “tricked up” with various base spirits, but we felt like it needed to be a beer…

Here at On Rotation, we’re partial to a lemon sour, given our address on Lemmon Avenue. We made a sour ale known as Lemmon Avenue that was full of the rich, citrus tart of lemons last year.

To give it a little more complexity and some supporting sweetness this summer, we looked to the cocktail world for inspiration and themed it after the Bramble.

Lemmon Avenue Bramble is a dry, tart sour ale with almost 100 pounds of lemons and Andean blackberries. The fruit accentuates the sour nature of the beer and adds a berry sweetness that softens the acidity.

This is the kind of sour that pairs well with a rich meal – maybe fried chicken? It cuts through proteins so very well with a lingering lemon tang and berry sweetness that’s addictingly punchy.

Lemmon Avenue Bramble will be freshly shaken, not stirred, and on tap on Thursday, June 22, at 2 PM.
