Coming soon....

It's that time of year again, can you believe it. It is almost the Summer Solstice and you know what that means.... Old Sol Wheatwine, oh and the longest day of the year, they tell me its all downhill from here.

This beer is brewed on the Lunar New Year and aged until its release on the Summer Solstice, which is Thursday June 21st this year. I hope to see you ordering one or more from me. Rumor has it that it is tasting rather hoppy this year. In 2003 it won a gold medal at the GABF in the Other Strong Ale or Lager category. This year Wheatwine's have their own category, we are tossing around the idea of sending it to Denver again.

It was originally brewed in 2002 by Kevin Forhan, the inspiration was provided by Teri of Steelhead fame. This tasty beverage is brewed with 46% Wheat, mostly Simcoe and Amarillo hops with a bit of Warrior hops as well. Here are the specifics for those of you that like to be in the know: OG 23.6 Plato, 1.100SG, 9.75% by vol., 7.75%by wt.

Right now we are in the end stages of tweaking the t-shirt design with our very good friends down at Destee Nation in Fremont. If you ever need t-shirts made these are the guys and gals to go to. I know you will like it. They will be ready for the release date. We will also have 22oz bottles available upon it's release. I hope to share the evening with you all.
