We are excited to have the Michelob Brewing Company back again as our Beer Sponsor for the next four weeks. Last September they sponsored several episodes as they rolled out their Fall/Winter Sampler Packs. We sampled AmberBock, Pale Ale, Irish Red, Porter and Marzen, and even shot episode 165 right there in the kettle room!
This month they are rolling out their Spring/Summer Sampler Pack, which is an all-wheat offering. It’s great because not only are there great beers inside these sampler packs, but just like the Fall Sampler, this one also has tons of great information on both the packaging and the in-pack Flighting Sheet. Go to Michelob.com and check out the Beer Locater to find out where you can pick one up. There are also tasting videos for each beer at michelob.com, where anyone can do an interactive tasting with Kristi, their Brewmaster.
This week we are sampling Shock Top. This is Michelob’s Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with orange, lemon & lime peels and coriander. It is unfiltered, so it looks cloudy but has a light golden-orange color to it. (Show the flight sheet from the pack)
- Serve in a Weisse (wheat beer) style glass
- Uses wheat and two-row barley malt
- Cascade and Willamette hops
- Medium bodied with a smooth, citrus finish
- Won a Gold Medal at the North American Beer Awards in 2006
Go to Michelob.com to learn all about the Shock Top.
Be sure to pick up a Michelob Sampler pack and Drink along with us over the next moth. Next week we will be drinking the Dunkel Weisse. We will also have Kristi the Michelob Brewmaster on hand to give us a personal tasting and walk us through each of the Michelob beers in this Spring/Summer Sampler Pack.
