10 Barrel Brewing Co.
10 Barrel Brewing Co. is known for its craft brews but one craft brew in particular -- the Raspberry Sour Crush -- could make a good base for a margarita. You can recreate this bad boy by adding cilantro, raspberries, jalapeno, lime juice, simple syrup and Soju tequila to a 10 Barrel Raspberry Sour Crush. This might be a way for craft beer enthusiasts to deviate, just a little bit, from their drink preferences today.
