On the heels of news that the Cleveland-based Platform Beer Co. has plans to open a brewery in Garfield later this year, they’ve also announced a sweet collaboration with a beloved Pittsburgh bakery.
Platform and Prantl’s Bakery have teamed up to create a special Burnt Almond Torte-flavored Blonde Ale, inspired by Prantl’s famous dessert, which was once called the “greatest cake America has ever made.”
“As we were looking to create a space in Pittsburgh, we kept hearing about the Burnt Almond Torte,” says Platform’s Matt Subel in a release. “We had just started testing out some dessert-inspired sours, and they have been some of our most successful releases.”
