"come drink and do stuff."

gamma ray ginger wheat

Get ready. It's back June 30th, 2020.

The force is strong with this one. Gamma Ray is one of everyone's favorite beers, and for good reason!

Gamma Ray Ginger Wheat was designed to be the perfect pairing for food. We began with a classic Witbier malt bill then added our own twist by tossing fresh ginger root and lime zest into the boil while adding cracked black and pink peppercorns as a “dry hop”. The body of this beer is light and spritzy with just a touch of tartness to help round out all the flavors and make the ginger and citrus sing. Gamma Ray is ultra refreshing especially when consumed with full flavored, spicy or floral foods, especially grilled veggies.
