boulevard x firestone walker barrel-aged wheat wine 4pk/12oz bottles
Far across fields of golden grain lay two breweries. These breweries were longtime friends and dreamed of doing a beer together. Full of happenstance and mystery arose the Wheat Wine. Brewed individually and then blended, this beer combines the best of the West and the Great Plains in a strong ale that doesn’t hold back.
Two beers with the same mission, brewed and aged in a way that reflects each brewery’s program and how they differ – then combined into one. This collaboration features both brewery’s innovation skills: A wheat wine blended and fermented with white grapes from Paso Robles, and a wheat wine fermented with Kveik yeast in Kansas City.
The beers were barrel-aged in a mix of whiskey, rye, and chardonnay barrels then blended together producing a dry, light-bodied barrel-aged wheat wine. With a clean fermentation profile, the wheat, wine, whiskey, and wood all sing together.
