A Bushel of Apples a craft beer created by Phase Three Brewing and Affy Tapple is back by popular demand "It's so exciting to see demand continue to rise for A Bushel of Apples year after year. There's quite a grassroots fanbase that has developed; both from consumers who grew up loving the Affy Tapple brand and from beer aficionados who are experiencing our products for perhaps the first time," says Todd McClamroch, Vice President at Affy Tapple. The beer deftly captures what it's like to bite into an Affy Tapple Original Peanut Caramel Apple , with the tart apple taste hitting the taste buds first, followed by caramel and peanut, and then a light crisp finish.

"We could not be more excited to bring back this specialty fall beer collaboration to Chicagoland and downstate Illinois. Going into our 3rd year here, the feedback and response we keep receiving from retailers and beer drinkers alike is simply unreal. In fact, after last year, Jewel-Osco took notice and reached out early on to ensure their customers could experience this unique liquid take on a timeless fall treat," says Evan Morris, Co-founder/Director of Operations & Shaun Berns, Co-founder/Head Brewer at Phase Three Brewing. Morris and Berns continue, "The other aspect of this collaboration with Affy Tapple that makes it so special for us is the charitable component.
