You may be surprised to hear that Chocolate Wheat is actually one of our most requested beers. With brews like Critterless and Aorta Ale released to store shelves or served on tap at the pub every day, it’s easy to understand why a simple and true-to-form Porter could get lost in the shuffle. To quote Justin Timberlake, Chocolate Wheat is “bringing sexy back” this winter with a refreshed label and an exclusive bottle release at the pub and Short’s Mart.
Chocolate Wheat (7.3% ABV – 30 IBU) is a Porter brewed with chocolate malt, wheat malt, and specialty grains. The combination creates a deep black, full-bodied beer that provides subtle hop flavors and rich malt tones. Chocolate Wheat has balanced flavors of roasted caramel, coffee, and chocolate, and ends with a smooth finish.
Last bottled and distributed in October of 2012, you could say Chocolate Wheat is “having a moment.” Released today exclusively in bottles at the pub and Short’s Mart ONLY and served on nitro at select locations throughout the mitten state, there’s never been a better time to be a Porter fan. You’ll have to make a trip to Bellaire to score yourself a sixer of Chocolate Wheat. And at only $7.99 a six-pack, don’t hesitate to stock up. According to NOAA, winter is in fact coming. And we promise, mountains of snow, freezing rain, and gale force winds are a lot more enjoyable with a pint of Chocolate Wheat in hand.
