Loquats? More quats

Revelry Brewing will release its loquat IPA with a party on Mon. July 1, from 4 to 10 p.m. The "Broquat" is a 7 percent ABV, loquat-infused IPA. A portion of the proceeds from the release party will go to the Parks Conservancy's Charleston Trees.

In case you missed our story about it, the loquat — those little orange fruits that appear on trees in the spring, also known as the Japanese plum — is not only edible, but a delicious fruit that is used around town in drinks, dishes, and now brews. Vince Lendacki, Amen Street's bar manager, picked 200 pounds of the fruit for the beer and managed the feat in five days.
If you haven't had one, mark your calendars for 2020–you've missed the season. In the mean time, imagine the fuzziness of a peach, with a sweet and tangy taste similar to a mix of apricot and plum, with a pit like a cherry. Yum.
