Sweetwater Brewing announced a new brew this week: Waterkeeper Hefeweizen Ale. The beer is an unfiltered wheat ale that will be available through June, and is part of Sweetwater’s campaign to help watersheds across the Southeast.
Reportedly, the beer has the flavors of banana, clove, and lemon. The bottle features a hand-drawn image of the river and the story of how Sweetwater got involved with Waterkeeper Alliances across the Southeast.
Waterkeeper Hefeweizen Ale will be previewed at the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper’s annual River Revival Thursday night (5/19/11). It will begin showing up on draft in bars and restaurant, and in bottles elsewhere by the end of May. I’m looking forward to trying at one of my favorite restaurants. Hopefully they participate in the program!
