I was just wondering if you can add any fruit to your beer. Lets just say bananas for example. I mostly hear of people adding berry type fruits. Just curious.

The top of the page has a link called Recipes that will take you to all of the HBT recipes. There is a specialty beer that has all kind of fruits you could imagine. Or search the fruit beer part.

Good luck

I have to disagree.

I went to a beer tasting event last year and tried an apricot and an apple beer. Out of all the beers they were definitely my favorites!

I wouldn't want to drink 15 of them in one sitting. But the contrast with a light bodied beer, bitter hops and fruity after taste is awesome!
