Witbier; 10.1% ABV
Make your first Wit of the spring an imperial one. Ten-Ninety’s Belgian not only packs a punch, but offers robust flavor -- malty, sweet, and a bit acidic. The flavor and ABV remind one of a Belgian Tripel, but it’s brewed as a traditional Belgian Wit, with pilsner malt, flaked wheat and barley, and accented by coriander, orange peel, and local honey. Its a high ABV brew that taste great and goes down easy -- a dangerous combo, but a good one.
Pale ale with rye; 5.8% ABV
Rye’s popularity within the realm of craft brewing (and craft whiskey) has increased steadily. Rye flavor can be gained from aging beer in rye whiskey barrels or used as a substitute for barley. The added dimension of rye provides depth to this classic, well-crafted American Pale Ale. In addition, the dry-hopped Green Bullet and Chinook offers a refreshing tropical aroma.
Wheat ale; 5.7% ABV
Available in cans, this remarkably fresh-tasting wheat ale is perfect for the first time you scrape the last vestiges of snow and ice off the grill. The Belgian yeast offers a bit of bubble gum and spice, as well as a classic wheat taste. It’s about as easy-drinking as a beer can be -- perfect for warmer spring and summer days.
