Just drank a cucumber beer at Voodoo Brewing in Meadville, PA last night. It was the third summer in a row they have made it. And the recipe tastes a bit better each year. The base beer was reminiscent of simple blonde ale, lightly hopped with neutral yeast character to let the cucumbers shine through. The bartender said they peeled about 200# of cucumbers and dry "cuked" with them in secondary. The beer was quite refreshing and even more so with a touch of salt added to enhance the cucumber flavor. I think the beer would have been even better had they used a yeast with a bit more character.
