Wheat Wars

Michael Agnew, founder of A Perfect Pint will host a beer battle royale at The Four Firkins on Tuesday, August 19th at 6:00pm. Email alvey AT with “Wheat Wars” in the subject line to register. There are only 35 spots, so register now.

Here is Michael’s description of the event:

“Wheat! One of the oldest cultivated cereal grains. The earliest beers from brewing’s dim history were almost certainly made with wheat. In the modern brewing world, this most basic of grains has inspired divergent brewing traditions in different parts of the
globe. For your consideration; the opaque banana and clove of the German Hefeweizen, the delicate citrus and spice of the Belgian Wit, and the clean, bready, more assertively hopped American Wheat. What factors combine to produce the perfect wheat beer? What sets these three distinct styles, all based in this ancient grain, apart? The lines have been drawn for an epic battle of the beers. Three wheat styles and six wheat beers. Which will emerge victorious from the crucible of Firkin Forum. You will be the judge. Let the Wheat Wars begin!”
