Speakeasy Discreet Wheat Ale is the San Francisco, California based brewery’s first release of 2016.
The American wheat beer release coincides with SF Beer well (January 22-31). The invention of brewer Brandon Nash and girlfriend Pilar Odom, Speakeasy Discreet Wheat Ale topped the brewery’s 2nd Annual Employee Brew-off.
“I designed the recipe to be simple and chose high quality ingredients, letting different flavors speak for themselves. I also wanted to include a unique ingredient. My girlfriend Pilar, who is very knowledgeable about herbs, suggested adding lemongrass to give the brew an extra kick of citrus and grassy flavors.”
