From the Brewer – “Hell or High Watermelon Wheat is our summer seasonal beer available from April through September in six-pack cans and on draft. We start by brewing a classic American wheat beer, which undergoes a traditional secondary fermentation using fresh watermelon. A straw-colored, refreshing beer with a kiss of watermelon aroma and flavor.

Brooklyn Greenmarket Wheat


Brooklyn-Greenmarket-WheatBrooklyn Greenmarket Wheat is a celebration of New York State agriculture, uniting local ingredients to create a beer with a mission.

We work with GrowNYC’s Greenmarket to source grain for the brew – they connected us to Lakeview Organic Farms to provide 70% of the grain used in our mash. The hops are grown on a family farm outside of Syracuse owned by our own Technical Director Mary Wiles, who grew up there.

From the Brewer – “Our brewers take raw wheat, grown at Oeschner Farms, malted barley, Mary’s hops, and Bavarian yeast and unite them into an unfiltered beer with light fruit flavors and a zesty palate. It’s great with foods from fresh salads to grilled meats. Proceeds from the beer sales support GrowNYC’s mission to revive New York’s grain industry and provide support to family farms, farmers markets, community gardens and other agricultural projects. It’s a New York beer, from New York farms, and now it’s all yours.

Food Pairings: Fresh salads, fresh cheese, grilled meats, hamburgers.

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

It’s no jive, you’ll just dig it.”
