The Neshaminator – This is our take on a German wheat bock, but with a small twist. We brew this 8.5% holiday offering with orange blossom honey and keeping true to the style, over 50% wheat along with dark Munich malt, a hint of Chocolate malt, and German Hallertau and Tettnanger hops. While most German bock beers named with the ‘-or’ ending are traditional double bock lagers, we decided to break from tradition a bit with not only the name of this beer, but the use of orange blossom honey as well. Prost!
This is a Belgian Style Wheat beer. It is pale yellow in color and delicate in flavor. It is lightly hopped, not at all bitter, and spiced with dried Curacao Orange Peel and Coriander. It is brewed with 41% Unmalted Wheat, a small amount of oats, and the remainder malted barley. It is lightly hopped in order to let the flavors of the wheat, yeast and spices come through. It is fermented with an authentic Belgian yeast strain, which creates some very unique fruity wild yeast flavors. Overall this is a very delicate beer with a complex flavor profile of various fruits and spices.
Witbier or white beer is a top fermented wheat beer originating from Belgium and the Netherlands. This light and refreshing beer is brewed with coriander and bitter orange peel, offering a light hop kick at the finish. In our opinion, it’s a perfect beer to enjoy under the sun with friends.

Hops: East Kent Golding, Czech Saaz
Belgian White or Wit beers area a traditional classic of Belgium. This iconic style was once almost completely forgotten until brewer Pierre Celis revitalized the style in the mid-1960s. Traditionally brewed with a moderate ABV and spiced with coriander, we have decided to put a twist on a classic for this special occasion.
The only beer from Brouwerij Sterkens to come in a typical glass bottle, Sterkens White Ale is a wonderful example of the authentic Belgian wit style. The classic triumverate of wheat, orange, and coriander combine to create a light and clean beer with a refreshing and complex flavor.
Witbier or bìere blanche ("white beer") is a wheat ale style that originated in Belgium hundreds of years ago. Usually made from unmalted wheat with barley malt, witbiers have a hazy pale color; they are seasoned not only with hops but with spices - Belgian brewers have added herbs, spices, and fruit to beer for centuries. After fading in popularity in the early 1900s, witbier sales have roared back during the past 20 years.
