    The Wheatwine thread on the main page got me to thinking, other than Big Time's Old Sol, who makes a Wheatwine in our region?

    I just had the Elysian Death Star Black Wheatwine at the Burgundian last week.

    I consider western Montana part of the Northwest on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
    So Big Sky Five Valleys* qualifies as long as you drink it on one of those days.

    * But it's not a favorite. I'll always go back to Harvest Dance for my wheatwine fix. I'll seek out Old Sol though, based on reputation alone.

    Breakside did a BB aged wheatwine a while back that was fanfuckingtastic.

    Not a regular release though

    Kind of off topic, sorry, but is Harvest Dance from Boulevard worth trying? I've never tried a wheatwine and it's the only one I know I can get my hands on.

    I love it, one of my all-time go-to beers.

    Also, I find nothing objectionable or inaccurate in Boulevard's description: "Beginning with a large portion of wheat malt, we add an equally generous helping of Hallertau and Citra hops and age the ale on both French and American oak. The result is a big, warming burst of tropical fruit flavors, highlighted by subtle wine-like notes, and rounding slowly to a long, dry, oaky finish."

    Does that not sound delicious to you?

    Okay okay, you're right. Well, I guess I know what I'm drinking tonight.

    LOL I love those things. Like "OMG the seats in this private jet are making my legs fall asleep. FML."

    BA Bigfoot....? What's that...? I'm starting to think this thing isn't even real!

    There's a BA Yeti and BA Abominable. I wonder if the BA Bigfoot is hiding out with BA Loch Ness and BA Chupacabra.
