A wheat beer loaded with a variety of Granny Smith and Honey Crisp apples for a fall crisp flavor.
Since the stripers have started making their way back to the bay we thought that we should replace the refreshing summer “Striper” Wit beer with a few fruit flavor beers for the fall. About 40 pounds of apples were handpicked by Peter at Eastmont Orchards and added to the Wit to create a subtle apple flavor. The name is reminiscent to looking out into the Bay where you can see the fisherman dropping traps in an attempt to catch some Blue Claws before they head into the mud for the winter. Enjoy the taste of Crab Apple before it too is gone for the winter.
The lightly bready wheat malt in the beer pairs well with spicy orange peel chicken, Kung Pao chicken, or spicy teriyaki chicken or beef Skewers. This style also adds bright complexity to the heat of spicy Pad Thai while providing a sweet contrast to the salty, savory sauce
