A tribute to the history and stature of the famous Somerville landmark, Old Powderhouse Wheat Wine features a varietal of hard, red winter wheat that was grown at Four Star Farms in Northfield, MA and malted by Valley Malt in Hadley, MA. Praised by artisanal bakers, the flavors contributed by this hardy grain are earthy and complex helping to create a robust and powerful beer worthy of its name and the history to which it pays homage. For hops, only domestic varieties were used for Old Powderhouse, combining perfectly with the rich flavors in the wheat for a bright and wonderfully aromatic beer reminiscent of fresh, ripe fruit. On the dry side for a beer of its strength and style, Old Powderhouse is remarkably drinkable at 11% ABV with only subtle hints of alcohol coming through the fruity bouquet during the finish. In celebration of the change in season, of new growth, and of the land we call home, we are pleased to offer Old Powderhouse Wheat Wine for release throughout the state of Massachusetts this Spring."

Draft sample at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a bubbly, white head. This is a big boy. Definitely some alcohol kick, a bit of honey, rich bread. Punchy. Full bodied with fine carbonation; and oily. Warming finish with bready malts, ripe fruits, booze and mild caramel. Tasty but perhaps a bit too bold.
