Brewery: Potosi Brewing Company
Location: Potosi, WI
Style: Belgian Style Witbier, ABV: 5.5%…..Witbier is a Belgian Style ale that’s very pale and cloudy in appearance due to it being unfiltered and the high level of wheat that’s used in the mash. Always spiced, generally with coriander, orange peel and other spices or herbs in the back ground. The crispness and slight twang comes from the wheat and the lively level of carbonation.
Potosi Brewing Company was founded in 1852 and started off as a simple service to quench the thirst of area farmers, fisherman, and miners. The brewery has changed hands since its beginning but still thrives on honoring the beer culture in Wisconsin. The town of Potosi itself boasts a rich beer history. In 2004, because of its passion for beer, brewery history, and beer making culture, Potosi was chosen over Milwaukee and St. Louis to be the home of the National Brewery Musuem. Not bad for a small town in western Wisconsin!
Enjoy this Wee Stein Wit from the wee little town of Potosi, WI. Cheers!
Advent Reading: Luke 1:1-4 An Account From Eyewitnesses
Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the things that have been accomplished among us,
2 just as those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and ministers of the word have delivered them to us,
3 it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus,
4 that you may have certainty concerning the things you have been taught.
(Luk 1:1-4 ESV)
