Whirlwind Wheat is named after the mini wind tunnel that ripped across our patio on a super busy holiday weekend.

Whirlwind Wheat is brewed with a wheat based grain bill, a touch of honey malt and gets its hop profile from late kettle additions of Mosaic, Michigan Copper & Denali Hops. Adding to the uniqueness it is fermented with our Kolsch yeast strain which offers a dry finish while still letting the malt come through for a nice balance. Aroma is a mix of citrus and tropical fruit with notes of pine.
