Brewed by:
Redhook Ale Brewery
New Hampshire, United States

Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Redhook’s twist on the Belgian style is the addition of fresh ginger, which adds a refreshing snappiness to this lighter-bodied wheat beer. Redhook Wit is perfect for warm summer months of outdoor BBQ-ing, sitting by the pool, or just taking a break by hanging inside enjoying the AC and watching old re-runs of Gilligan’s Island.
