Blueberry Steam Ale

I Have been brewing some old favorites lately and I don't see any reason to log beers unless I change the recipe.
That being said.....and don't mock me, I'm making a blueberry steam ale. Steam ales are lagers that are fermented at ale temps. But that's not the embarrassing part. I normally am not into fruity beers and I would have mocked someone for brewing a blueberry beer too, but I'm telling you this stuff is legit! I had it (alongside a peanut butter porter) at brewbrothers and I was blown away.
