)-- High Rollers Wheat Beer is made with 40% wheat malt, 60% pale malt and special low alpha acid hops, which allow the natural tartness of the wheat to shine through. At 5.3% ABV, its effervescent head, delicate tangy taste, and crisp clear finish make it a refreshing, thirst quenching delight. High Rollers Wheat can be enjoyed alone or with a slice of lemon. Excellent as an aperitif or with lighter fare, such as gazpacho, salads, or sushi. Unlike most cloudy wheat beers, this unique beer is sparklingly clear and has been known to win over even the most ardent domestic beer and wine fans. Best when served in a tall pilsner-style glass.
Like most of AVBC beers, High Rollers Wheat uses the Boontling name for a location in the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County, California. High Rollers were the people of Yorkville that would come down into the main town of Boonville for festivities and forget to unroll their dress pants, which was done to keep them from getting damaged by stickers, burrs, and mud during the ride. Secondly, the Yorkville region was thusly named for the rolling hills comprising most of the area.
High Rollers Wheat Beer will be available for limited release August 15th in 12oz bottles, 22oz bottles, and draft.
High Rollers Wheat Beer has won 6 medals, including a Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival.
