A perennial favorite at the Pub on Loop 1604, Rye Wit has been a staple on our taps from the very beginning. Meaning "white" in Flemish, the Wit biers of Belgium get their name from the opaque chill haze cause by starch from the raw wheat used in the mash. Our tongue-in-cheek version includes malted rye, adding a subtle, spicy complexity. The traditional addition of coriander and orange peels adds another layer of flavor, catalyzed by an aggressively fruity top-fermenting yeast.
The result is a wonderfully thirst-quenching beer full of citrus candy notes, mellow, bready malt undertones and an effervescent, billowy foam cap. The perfect brew for a hot South Texas afternoon in the sun, on the river, by the lake, or along the gulf coast.
