If you’re googling how to enrich beer, or “what is enriched beer?” It’s likely you’ve been watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. In the “The Gang Solves the North Korea Situation” episode a rival bar is described as serving “enriched beer”.

What enriched beer isn’t!
Enriched beer isn’t beer which has had a slice of fruit added to it – before you go down that road!
I suppose in theory, you could say adding anything to a beer that’s been brewed (home brewed of course) could be a form of “enhancement” based on the drinkers taste.
Light beers like Corona are almost universally served with a wedge of lime stuffed in the neck of the bottle – and that “does it” for some.
BUT, whether this is an enhancement of flavor or an improvement based on your tastes – I’m sorry to say this isn’t enriching beer!
