Nelson County, Virginia
You know it’s getting close to summer when you hear the words Rockfish Wheat. Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton started having the popular beer back on tap this past Thursday and bottled, cases, and cases and cases and cases Friday afternoon.
The beer just took home the silver medal for American style wheat beer in Chicago on Saturday, April 10th! The 2010 World Beer Cup was the largest beer competition ever held and its every-two-year occurrence is touted as the Olympics of Beer, with over 3,300 beers from 642 breweries and 44 countries judged by an international panel of 179 judges.
Rockfish Wheat is described as;
“An authentic Bavarian-style “Kristall Weizen” filtered wheat beer. The unique flavor created by the yeast has made this ale a summer favorite in the beer world.”
Ok, we’re convinced! We just love summer!
I prefer Martinis!
