In the brewing process, the team replaces the wheat that is usually in the mash for a gose with ramen. "While out on the town [in San Diego] hitting breweries, [head brewer Ryan Deyo] noticed several Ramen shops in the area. The idea struck him that the noodles could be used as a source of fermentable sugars and starches. So, he gave it a shot when he returned," Riddile said.
"The reaction has been great," he continued. "Obviously there are a lot of raised eyebrows when you say, 'We used 55 pounds of Ramen Noodles in this beer.' But a majority of those that have tried it have loved it."
The brewery plans on keeping Cup O' Beer available through late August or early September. So, you've got time if you want to confuse a college kid who lives on ramen. (Or, you know, if you want to try something off the beaten path yourself.)
