Nicie Spicie: Citrus, Spice and Everything Nice!

NicieSpicieCitrus and spice and everything nice! And that is exactly what our summer seasonal Nicie Spicie is: nice! Nice for relaxing on the boat, nice for refreshing after a water ski pull, or nice for watching the sunset over Lake Michigan. It’s the perfect complement for everything summer.

Originally a homebrew recipe of Joe Short’s, this American Pale Wheat Ale doesn’t even need to be served with a lemon or orange wedge, they are brewed right into the beer! To add a Short’s twist, three kinds of peppercorns and ground coriander are added as well. The end result is a refreshing brew that has an excellent aroma of spice and citrus.

Nicie Spicie (4.5% ABV, 14 IBU), can be found on shelves today (6/2) and contains a 50/50 blend of malted barley and malted white wheat. It is packed with fresh citrus zest, then spiced with the spice blend. This light bodied ale is complex yet scrumptious and is presented with a gorgeous golden color.

Pick up your 6-pack today and hit the water. Enjoy the sun and the waves, but don’t get too excited and forget your SPF. Remember, you have to drink up those golden rays responsibly.

      Hey Dave,

      We apologize for the late response. This year, Nicie is only available in limited quantities of cans and on draft. At this time, your best bet is to make a trip to the pub in Bellaire to drink Nicie on draft.

    Oh no! Can I pick it up from your brewery?

    1. Short's Brewing Company says:

      Sorry Nic, Nicie season is over for the year! We hope you find another Short’s brew to fill the void.

    Ballpark, about how many peppercorn pounds/bbl were used in the recipe a few years back? I love the big hit of pepper in this one!

      Approximately .75 pounds ber barrel.

    I love the Nicie Spicie best, but have you guys ever thought of making a Mead? Traditional mead. You could name it after something Skyrim or a viking based tv show 😉 just a thought. You could call it “Shield Maiden” or “Valhalla”. Something along those lines.
