Cucumber beers appear to be in style this spring, as at least five breweries around Colorado have mentioned the shiny green vegetable when talking about new beers. The only bottled one so far, however, is from Boulder's Twisted Pine Brewing, which released Cucumber Cream Ale last week. The second offering from its "Farm to Foam" series, the beer was made with more than 300 pounds of fresh English cucumbers from 2 R's Farms in Platteville, along with malted barley and wheat from Colorado Malting Company in Alamosa, and Crystal hops from Misty Mountain Hop Farm in Olathe.
