Dirty Hippie

Dirty Hippie Wine Details

Description: Even the most conservative palates will love and celebrate this hippie conundrum. Our brewer, tired of the same old American Wheat Beer decided to spike this super refreshing style with Chocolate and Caramel malts creating an uber refreshing and surprisingly light; dark beer. Allthough we generally don’t like fruit in our beer, enjoying the hippie with a slice of orange will not hurt it a bit.

Varietal Definition
Wheat Ale:
As the name would suggest these are ales that use a proportion of wheat in the mash to add a protein haze. Wheat ales, inspired by the German weizen tradition were popular before prohibition in the US and are enjoying a resurgence in popularity. This generic category encapsulates the diverse interpretation of the classic German Weizen styles brewed in America and elsewhere.
