steve summer wheatI’m pretty sure that the only reason this isn’t a medal winner is because Dawg LB Steve hasn’t entered this one in a contest yet. If he did and didn’t win anything I’m sure the judges were taste blind because in my book this one would take a gold medal. Yes that’s right Steve has offered up another recipe that is a sure to become a summertime favorite with it’s bright, crisp and citrusy favor and coming in at just 4.2% ABV this is a great session beer for a lazy summer afternoon sitting by the pool and I bet you that you can’t drink just one.

Hey if you haven’t done so yet make sure to visit Steve’s Facebook page, Montucky Brewing and don’t forget to check out the award and medal winning recipes here on the BeerBorg.
