“You don’t have to be from Philly to love a water ice come summertime, and we knew getting the flavor right was going to be critical to this recipe,” said Phil Markowski, master brewer at Two Roads. “That meant using the authentic ingredients and recipe to meet Two Roads’ exacting standards and the approval of the water ice experts themselves. Recreating the blue raspberry color and flavor was some of the most fun we’ve had at the brewery.”
