18th Street / Against The Grain Killewitte

Brewed by 18th Street Brewery
Gary, Indiana USA
4.5% Witbier | 27 Ratings | Special Release |
A collaboration beer we brewed with Louisville, KY’s Against The Grain Brewery. ’KILLWITTE’ is a smoked witbier with Mosaic and a touch of Warrior. "Conceived in the shadow of a forgotten city by a beacon of light on 18th Street in the 46403. Contrived in collaboration by the kindred spirits from the 40202... Killewitte is a collision of flavors shrouded in smoke. Brewed with a blend of Mosaic & Amarillo hops; and a dose of orange wood & coriander smoked malt from Against The Grain Brewery... Bright, citrus hopped, and soft spicy flavors cut through a haze of delicate smoke like a kilowatt bulb on a dark street lamp in Gary. As light and effervescent as any perfect summer beer, KilleWitte was designed to assault your taste buds like a college age anarchist on a op ed writing rampage.....wait, what did you think this was about? Drink up, its witbier."
