Lots of interesting things happening at Summit Brewing Co. They’ve added new fermenters, expanding their annual capacity to 105,000 barrels. More surprising is the fact that that there will be a bit of a line-up change this summer. Scandia Ale, Summit’s interpretation of a witbier, will replace their Hefe Weizen as the summer seasonal. Look for it in bottles and on draft starting in May and running through August or September. The Hefe Weizen, meanwhile, will find its way into the Chicago market as it’s one of Summit’s best sellers in that market.
Summit ESB will now be a full-time beer. Look for it in bottles and on draft this month.
No new limited releases are planned for 2007.
