Of all the fun Hi-C juice boxes from my childhood, Ecto-Cooler was definitely my favorite. The spirit of the Ghostbusters-themed drink has been resurrected into a beer by Tired Hands Brewing Company.
Tired Hands has an experimental lab where the Ecto Cooler-inspired brew, dubbed “Necto Cooler” was created. Infused with grilled nectarines and hopped with Simcoe and Citra, the beer stands at about 4.5 percent ABV without any ectoplasm aftertaste. Probably.
For folks outside of the Philly area, we just missed the release. Maybe if we ask really, really, nice with a cherry on top, Tired Hands might bring back the brew to share with the rest of the class.
