The first in Burnside Brewing’s more experimental brews releases this Tuesday the 11th at the pubs 4pm opening. This is a pretty highly anticipated brew for me so I thought worth posting. Here is what Burnside says about the beer:
The Gratzer is a commercially extinct smoked wheat beer native to Poland. Burnside Gratzer began with our executive chef Ronnie Vance smoking 600 pounds of white wheat over Apple wood. The result is a mild, cloudy wheat beer with a full mouth feel. Drinkers will notice flavor notes of both sweet & nutty that finish with just a touch of smoke. Our Gratzer is designed to pair well with food, and all Burnside Beers are unfiltered to protect their complex flavor profiles. Beer notes 5.67% ABV, 8.75 IBU’s.
