fermented maltos (at least the bulk), hops, carbonation.

My ginger and pumpkin beer are beer. Ones bittering is mostly ginger with a small hop addition, I'm not sure I'd concider a true gruit a beer.


a cherry, wheat, dry okra'ed with a cadbury egg addition at bottling might be bad beer but its beer

I'm in this place myself with a wine I added some honey to. Where does a white honey wine become a niagra grape melomel.

I do make an exception for chicory with beignets.....I think that's like a universal rule.

Though the australians make an great beer with Wattle Seeds. But it's still I think mostly grain.

More than likely made with ketchup packets and juice boxes....Ketchup is made with tomatoes, which are a fruit...so Wine it is.

Stop. Just f!@#$ing stop. You're giving them ideas.

If this ends up in my market as a Shocktop limited release, I'm going to hurt you.

Somewhere, deep in a swamp, a man is muttering at his monitor right now:

"Tomatoes are vegebles. Pluto is a planet. I dun care what that newfangled science done call it!"
