Full Sail Brewing Co. (Hood River, Oregon) has officially announced that Blood Orange Wheat Ale is now available year-round in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft.
Originally released last year as a part of Full Sail Brewing’s rotating Pub Series, Blood Orange Wheat Ale has been promoted to Year-Round status in an effort to meet the beer community’s “demand for quality craft brew in cans.” After quickly reaching fan-favorite status and winning gold medals at the 2016 World Beer Awards and the 2017 World Beer Championships, it became clear to the decision makers at the brewery that Blood Orange Wheat Ale was the perfect “quality craft brew” for the job.
This refreshing Wheat Beer is brewed with 2-row Northwest Pale, Malted and Unmalted Wheat, and a twist of blood orange to yield an experience that has “a medium malt body with a crisp wheat finish and subtle orange flavor.” Blood Orange Wheat Ale weighs in 5.2% ABV and 23 IBUs.
“Blood Orange Wheat Ale became the favorite of many when we added it to our rotating Pub Series last year, so now we’re thrilled to brew it year-round in 12 oz. cans.”
– Jim Kelter, Full Sail Brewmaster
