Our Pina Colada Wheat Ale is a tropical infusion that will make you feel like you’re poolside. We infuse this light wheat ale base with 100% real coconut and juicy pineapple. The result is a beer reminiscent of the classic beverage. Just one rule: no Rupert Holmes songs allowed at the bar.

On tap at Woody’s. Pours a cloudy yellow gold, medium white head and lacing. Aromas are pineapples, coconut water, and wheat. Taste is straight pina colada juice, with a pleasent wheat session ale feel. Insanely drinkable, would love some ice cold growlers of this next to the beach or pool. Another example of why these dudes deserve the hype.

On draft for Funky Buddha’ s 1 year anniversary. I had no idea what to expect with this one since I’ve never order a pina colada but the pineapple coconut flavors drew me in and I was hooked. When Ryan says "pina colada" he means it. I passed it to my friend and didn’t tell her what it was and she nailed it first try. She goes "that’s a pina colada". Enough said.

On draft at the HI. Pours a cloudy yellow orange gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma of pina colada mix, pineapple, wheat and hints of Juicy Fruit gum. Taste is much the same. Excellent.

Kind of surprised at how much I liked this. I guess I had a hidden penchant for pineapple and coconut flavors in my beer. Golden, clear and some hoppiness but pina colada nonetheless. Tasty!

Draft at woodys with vin. Pours a deep hazy orange with lots of white lacIng. Aroma is light, standard wheat beer. Mouthfeel is smooth, and the master of cloking when it changes to straight piña colada. Insane notes of pinepple, wheat and coconut.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a hazy bright yellow color with a nice, fluffy white head. The nose brings forward fairly-strong notes of pineapple along with some underlying coconut. Fairly intense and well integrated. The flavor takes it up another step, as in addition to the fruit, there’s an underlying wheat character that actually tastes like beer. With the nose, I was afraid that this was just going to taste no different than an actual pina colada. Body is light and very refreshing. I could drink this all day. By far my favorite of the event.

Pours thick syrupy dark unclear thick yelllow with a white head and awesome lacing earlier in the sixtel. The aroma is lighter, some pineapple zing. The flavor brings dominant tangy pineapple on a thicker body, really pleasant. There is just enough sweetness to really make it a nice blend with the tartness of the pineapple.

Almost as delicious as the real thing!! The only thing it was missing was a maraschino cherry for the glass! I had two. No food at the brewery, but there was a food truck outside.

Impossible de se tromper en respirant ses émanations, noix de coco, ananas, banane sur fond de blé. Un clone incroyable du légendaire drink.
