Wild Heaven Citrus EDB (Emergency Drinking Beer), the third iteration of their #1 bestseller Emergency Drinking Beer, is hitting shelves. In our opinion, this is the best edition yet.
In 2015, the Avondale Estates, Georgia based brewery released EDB, a pilsner (using creative license) beer brewed with lemongrass, sea salt, and a touch of grapefruit zest. The intent was to create a crisp and refreshing beer with the versatility for any situation. Wild Heaven was overwhelmingly successful with this venture, as EDB has quickly become the brewery’s #1 seller.
When brewer and co-owner created EDB, he wanted a beer that was versatile in any situation. What he soon came to learn was Emergency Drinking Beer is a great palette for flavors like Watermelon (debuted in 2018) and now a heavy dose of citrus.
Citrus EDB features fresh lime juice, white grapefruit, and ruby red grapefruit juice. Some folks out there hate it when beers are described as “crushers” but you’re going to have to deal with it. Citrus EDB is one hell of a crusher. The lime and grapefruit make the beer bright with a touch of tart “zing” that compliments any food you can throw at it and would partner perfectly with a shorty of tequila. It’s the fastest we’ve killed three cans of beer that didn’t involve a funnel.
Wild Heaven Citrus EDB is available as a winter seasonal in 12-ounce cans and draft. Look for Berry EDB, and Tropical EDB later this year.
