The Companion is brewed in an old style called “wheat wine”, a wheat-based equivalent to barley wine. The floor malts give this beer a juicy malt character of considerable depth, 55% malted wheat gives it a surprising lightness on the palate, while our house ale yeast lends a gentle fruitiness. The Oxford Companion to Beer will impart knowledge, while The Companion imparts conviviality. Maybe you really can have it all?

    Supplied by BlueLou at Irishpfist, took us awhile to crack it open but it sure went fast once we did. Pours a red color, very clear with golden hues in the light. A bit of a grassy nose with backgrounds of thick sweetness. Flavor is a super sweet wheatiness, some corn, a bit of hops and apricot jam. Good boozy wheat wine.

    Special secret reserve from the Brooklyn rep for East Tennessee and this region, on tap at a private tasting and pairing @Bearden Beer Market for Knox Beer Crew. Nearly clear reddish amber pour with a slight bubbly near-white head and some lacing. Sweet fruity and floral aromas- complex especially after warming - tinge of alcohol though well-hidden, honeysuckle, light caramel. Taste is very nice: nicely fruity, a touch tart, a bit more on the sweet side than anything - caramel, light honey - then floral, honeysuckle, a touch of clementines... Wow, this is very very good! Took balls to brew it, Success! (Even scored a growler of it out of the deal!)
