    Last night, I had a couple of O'dell's Piña Agria on tap at the Red Cow in Minneapolis, before going to see Battles at First Ave. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. Anyone have any other examples of beer brewed with pineapple that they enjoyed? If so, I'd love to hear them.

    Funny, I just finished a bottle of Perennial's Pineapple Kumquat Berliner Weisse about an hour ago. After rating/reviewing, it came out to a 3.98 score. Definitely noticeable pineapple going on, overall a very tasty Berliner!

    The Bruery's 5 Golden Rings was pretty good. I was expecting something slightly gross, actually. I think it just has some pineapple juice, though—no pineapple in the fermentation as far as I'm aware.

    It was brewed several years ago, though. There might be some floating around somewhere, but you'd want to be sure it was cellared well.

    Mr. pineapple by Santan is a hefe with pineapple juice added during fermentation. I forgot about a 6 pack I had for a year and it still holds up but fresher is better

    Temperance in Evanston, IL has a Pineapple blonde ale called Greenwood Beach which has pineapple added (not sure if brewed with the fruit itself). It is a very decent summer fruit beer. Would be keen to try a wild ale brewed with the fruit.

    Only one ive ever had was Rivertowne- Hala Kaliki

    They are in Pittsburgh idk what your distro is. I found it in NE Philly. It was like drinking fresh pineapple juice. The finish was a bit rough and musty almost. But i had a 12pk and it was a good beer.

    The bar I work at has Oskar Blue's Pineapple Pinner on tap. I love original Pinner and pineapples so I had high expectations and they were met. Such an awesome beer.

    I've homebrewed a kiwi-honey beer a couple of times and really enjoyed it. Maybe i should try it again with some crushed pineapple just to see.

    I've never had one, how does the pineapple pair with hops - does it fight or join forces in your mouth?

    I've had Pineapple Sculpin on draft which is as delicious as it sounds. Lol. Wish they bottled that every once in a while.

    I didn't like that one but maybe it's because I'm not a lover of hefes.

    Flying Dog did a pineapple saison a couple summers ago. It was tasty enough for me to try and make a homebrew clone.

    Mr. Pineapple by Santan has the dubious honor of being my lowest rated beer here. I've had worst beers but did not review them on BA.

    The SS Kentucky by Against the Grain, which is a smoked Pineapple IPA...taste a lot better than it sounds.

    The Bruery has had in draft form Sour in the Rye with Pineapple and Coconut.

    Which is getting bottled in 2016.

    Julius from Treehouse does not have pineapple in it but damn if it does not taste and smell like it does. A fabulous beer though regardless!

    Quite a few pineapple IPAs that I have enjoyed. I like it more tropical and juicy and the pineapple pushes it even farther.

    One of Terrapin's Special Release beers, was smoked pineapple helles, The Pineapple Express, I remember the pineapple was subtle on the nose and the finish

    I was going to say the same thing. Just keep in mind OP or anyone who is looking for it, it was a one-off. I doubt they are making it again.

    Brewery Vivant's Tropical Saison has Pineapple and Mango in it and was quite enjoyable.

    This won't help you out, but there was a pineapple sour from Perennial at the Midwest Belgian beer fest. Anybody know what it was? Was phenomenal.

    Ya know.. I just had the Pineapple Kumquat this past weekend and it didn't taste the same. You sure? It was unlabeled at the event.

    J Wakefield Brewing incorporates pinapples in a few of their brews. The best iteration is their pineapple berliner. For whatever reason, I noticed that most breweries that use pineapple try to do so either via IPAs or Berliners.
