What's it Going to Bee?

March 19, 2015 | Posted in Event, Giveaway, News

New on tap at Veterans United Craft Brewery this Thursday, we have the sensational Belgian Bee.

This delicious beer is our Buzzin' Bee Honey Rye Wheat fermented with a Belgian Abbey Ale yeast. The traditional Buzzin' Bee is brewed with our house American Ale yeast, lending clean crispness and mildly-fruity notes. The Belgian Bee retains a hint of this profile, and layers on an additional set of pear, plum, and citrus flavors imparted by the yeast during the active fermentation stage of the brewing process.

To showcase how brewing a beer the same way but fermenting it with different yeast will affect the final flavor profile of the beer, we invite you to join in and vote for your favorite BATTLING BEE, Belgian or Buzzin', by trying a $4 side-by-side sampler tasting of the two beers.

Ballots are accepted in-person at the taproom only; sorry, no online voting. The Battle will end once the Belgian Bee keg kicks. The votes will then be counted, and a randomly-drawn ballot will win a gift card good for one cold pint poured fresh from the Veterans United taps.

Sweeto Burrito Jax will be on site at 5pm, so be sure to grab a stupendously-grande burrito with your Bee. There is no better thing than having a beer in one hand, and a burrito in the other.

We'll see you at the taproom. Let the Battle of the Bees Begin!
