October 20-27 is Atlanta Beer Week so we at the Wrecking Bar are excited to collaborate with other local beer lovers.
This a smoked Polish wheat style, using about 90 percent Oak Smoked Wheat malt from Weyermann. About 4.5 percent alcohol by volume, it was a style that mostly died out around the turn of the 20th century, but has been revived in the last decade.
Today, we release another collaboration brew, this one "The L5 Project Imperial Porter," which was brewed with Nick Rutherford from the Porter Beer Bar. We have distribution now, so this beer also will be served at the Porter starting next Friday, Oct. 26. This is a Baltic Porter style that has so much going on, lots of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, and just clean and delicious. And fairly dangerous at 8.7 percent alcohol by volume.
