BERKELEY, Calif. (Aug. 21, 2012) – Move over mimosas and bellinis, Champagne isn't the only sparkling beverage worthy of the brunch table. Fruit beers and ciders boast the same fruity effervescence worthy of washing down your Belgian waffles, chocolate chip pancakes, eggs Benedict, and bacon.

On August 23, from 7-8 p.m. CST, join Whole Foods Market and the Beer Wench as they taste and tweet through an array of fruit beers and ciders, challenging friends and fans to think outside the typical brunch beverage box. Tweet alongside foodies and beer lovers as the beer-loving community discusses breakfast beer and cider pairings, cooking with beer, and more.

To participate, pick up one or all of the featured fruit beers and ciders and tweet your experience using the hashtag #WFMBeer. Every 15 minutes, the focus of the tasting will shift to a different beverage. The schedule is as follows:

7:00 p.m. CST: Fox Barrel (@FoxBarrel) Naked Cider
7:15 p.m. CST: Widmer Brothers (@Widmer_Brothers) Marionberry Hibiscus Gose
7:30 p.m. CST: Crispin (@CrispinCider) Naked Cider
7:45 p.m. CST: MOA (@MOABEER) Breakfast Beer

Even if you don't have a delicious fruit beer or cider in hand, join the conversation on Twitter. Just don't forget the hashtag #WFMBeer.

Participation is limited to those 21 years or older.
