Port City – Optimal Wit – Belgian-Style White Ale

When something is optimal it has everything it needs and nothing that it doesn’t. The optimal amount of spices, wheat and hops is found in our Optimal Wit. Brewed as a traditional Belgian style witbier, it is crisp and citrusy with layers of flavor that evolve in the glass. We brew this with Virginia grown wheat and use Spanish orange peels and coriander, which are traditional wit spices. Our unique twist is Grains of Paradise, which gives it a subtle peppery character on the finish.

Great Divide – Heyday

HEYDAY is an eminently pleasant Belgian-Style White Ale. Brewed with barley, oats and raw wheat, Heyday is uniquely flavorful for such an easy-drinking ale. With a slightly cloudy appearance and traditional yeast, it is a balanced, agreeable offering. Exuding mild hop bitterness and a nuanced body, this is the easiest decision you’ll make all day.
