Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat

If you’ve ever experienced a Northwoods sunset, you know it’s a moment unlike any other. So instead of putting it into words, we captured the Northwoods’ finest moment in every batch of our Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat.

From the Brewer – “Brewed with just a touch of coriander spice, our award-winning Belgian-style witbier has a slight creaminess, dry tart finish and soothing citrus character that’s well complemented with an orange slice.

Sunset Wheat tastes great with seafood. Its mild citrus flavor and hint of coriander is the perfect contrast to a spicy dish like Southwestern Scallops.

Fort Collins Major Tom’s American Wheat

Fort-Collins-Major-Toms-American-WheatFrom the Brewer – “Our take on an American Classic is the refreshingly crisp Major Tom’s American Wheat. This unique creation is infused with real pomegranates & filtered to a bright finish. The result is a striking straw blonde color and sweet-tart finish.

Great when served with ratatouille, vegetarian dishes, or Burrata. And don’t forget fresh berries for dessert!

Recipe: Major Toms Caramelized Onions


5 med/large yellow sweet onions
4 oz butter
1/4 cup sugar
4-6 ounces of Major Toms
salt to taste


Slice onions thin (about 1/4 inch). Heat butter in wide pan or skillet. Add onions and cook over high heat until they start to brown. Reduce heat and continue to stir onions until all the onions become evenly brown. This will take a lot of time and patience (up to two hours). Once onions are browned evenly, deglaze with Major Toms and continue to cook until the beer is cooked off.   Season with salt. Onions then can be served immediately or cooled down and reheated for later.

Blue Star Wheat Beer

Blue-Star-Wheat-BeerFrom the Brewer – “Brewed in the style of the American Craft Beer renaissance, Blue Star is unfiltered, the yeast adding a complex note to the flavor profile.”


“A rich entry leads to smooth, medium-bodied toasted malt palate with nice dry citrus (bitter lemon) and mild, bittering hops. This shows great balance and sorts plenty of flavors in a stylish manner.”

DuClaw Funk Wheat Ale



From the Brewer – “The traditional American Wheat Ale serves as a solid baseline, but we couldn’t be content until we tore the roof off this sucker! Funk, our Blueberry Citrus Wheat Ale, sets the rhythm with a soulful fusion of American wheat and hops, before unleashing a stunning encore with big notes of blueberry and Meyer lemon. It’s no jive, you’ll just dig it.”

Southern Tier Hopsun

Southern-Tier-HopsunFrom the Brewer – “Make Hop Sun part of your summer survival kit, and no amount of heat or humidity will get you down. This summer thirst-quencher is not your average wheat ale. Light and slightly dry, it is the addition of fresh hop flowers after fermentation that adds a necessary kick on a hot summer day. Hop Sun is mild enough to be a refreshing summer offering, but has just enough of a hop profile to keep your taste buds tingling for another sip. Wheat, barley, and hops coalesce in this superb session ale, a telltale symbol of fun in the sun. Summer never tasted so good.”

This brew is particularly tasty with fresh mozzarella, berries, gazpacho, light picnic fare, BBQ.

FERMENTATION: Ale yeast, one variety of hops, three types of malts.
COLOR: Straw, light honey.
EFFERVESCENCE: Crisp, moderately carbonated.
NOSE: Bready wheat, light hop aroma, lemon rind, pine.
FLAVOR: Balance of malts and hops, pleasantly bitter finish, light sweetness from wheat.

Captain Lawrence Sun Block Wheat Style IPA

Captain-Lawrence-Sun-Block-Wheat-Style-IPAAs the sun starts to peek out from around the dark winter clouds it is a clear reminder that brighter days lie ahead. Deviating from the original recipe, this new and improved Sun block comes with a little more oomph in flavor but still has that great summer time body.

From the Brewer – “Brewed with pale and wheat malts this is a dry, refreshing American Wheat Ale. Unfiltered and dry hopped with Cascade hops for a bright, hoppy finish, this beer will help you fight off the sun all season long!.”

Think seafood, raw bar and it is really great with chicken dishes.

Stevens-Point-Nude-BeachFrom the Brewer – “Point Nude Beach is the perfect summer pleasure.  Available only during the warm months of summer, this lively and unfiltered wheat ale is well-balanced using “au naturel” raw and red wheat, then delicately finished with Yakima hops.  With a refreshing light flavor, Point Nude Beach is perfect while enjoying summer activities or just hanging out with friends.  Clothing optional.

Kona Brewing Wailua Wheat Ale

From the Brewer – “Swimming in a fresh water pool at the base of a cascading waterfall is what we all imagine we would find in paradise. On Maui, follow the old Hana Highway and you will find such a place – Wailua Falls. This plunging cascade of clear water is the inspiration for our Limited Release Wailua Wheat Ale. This golden, sun colored ale has a bright, citrus flavor that comes from the tropical passion fruit we brew into each batch. Sit back, relax and enjoy paradise anytime.”

Wailua Wheat Ale is an excellent beer to enjoy after a day on the water or at the beach (or even after mowing the lawn or playing softball in your “pau hana” summer league!). It typically pairs well with lighter fare like grilled fish and shrimp, roasted chicken, salads and Asian foods. Perhaps even a dish of vanilla ice cream.

Horny Goat Brew Co. Watermelon Wheat

This dry ale uses real watermelon fermented throughout the brew to put a delicious twist on a classic spring wheat.

From the Brewer – “You asked and we listened. We’re showing our melons! The backbone of this brew is heavy on the wheat with just a touch of Vienna malt for complexity. We add real watermelon to our tanks during fermentation, leaving a fruity essence on the back-end. German hops balance the fruit perfectly in this wheat ale for a slightly dry, extremely refreshing finish.

Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale

From the Brewer – “Inspired by the city of Chicago and densely populated with flavor, 312’s spicy aroma of Cascade hops is followed by a crisp, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body that’s immensely refreshing.
