Introducing Pure Biss, a Culinary Collaboration

 Pure Biss, Smuttynose's third chef collaboration (and first Smuttlabs release) debuts this weekend at Sonny's Tavern in Dover.

This unconventional witbier gets its swerve from the contributions of Chef Jamie Bissonnette. Instead of the traditional coriander and orange peel, Jamie brought kaffir lime leaves, spruce tips and 25 pounds of grapefruit zest to the brewday.  The rest of the ingredients are appropriate to the style.

How does it taste?  You'll have to come see for yourself at Sonny's, or after December 9, when the beer begins shipping to wholesalers.  Bottles will be available at Smuttynose, the weekend of December 13.


This is Biss
Chef Bissonnette has been widely recognized for his cuisine at Coppa, Toro and Eastern Standard in Boston, as well as winning "Chopped" on the Food Network. He has just opened a second Toro in New York, with business partner Ken Oringer. Coppa, Toro-Boston and Toro-Manhattan will all proudly feature Pure Biss bottles.
