MADISON, Wis. -- The latest green tea brew isn't something from a tea pot -- but a beer bottle.
Wisconsin micro brewer BluCreek is coming out with a new beer called Zen. The idea is to give a brewski the supposed health benefits of green tea.
The brewery said the English-style India Pale Ale could be the first of its kind and has a subtle green tea flavor.
The beer will combine the flavors of fresh Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial hops combined with all-natural green tea, BluCreek said.
BluCreek Brewing has tried other unusual combinations before, including an ale made with fresh wild blueberries and a beer using Wisconsin ginseng.
Zen will be available in some markets this month -- including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Florida and Ohio. It will sell for about $8 a six-pack.
