Wheat Wine is a beer style that takes its origins from the American craft brewing movement. His story shows how complete accident can make something extraordinary arise. Phil Moeller - a brewer from the Rubicon brewery in Sacramento, California - made the mistake of brewing barleywine with their friend by adding a large amount of wheat malt to the prepared mash. Instead of setting a new batch, curious about the effect, they decided to ferment the wort obtained. The moment the beer was ready to be tasted, they poured each other a glass and were surprised to find that by mistake they had done something really remarkable. Phil decided to present his discovery to the world, and "Winter Wheat Wine" from Rubicon Brewery became the first commercial example of wheatwine beer. It was rich, deep and complex yet smooth with well-hidden alcohol. His cast version "from the stick" in the brewery was very popular in the 90s. The beginning of the 21st century brought the beer further recognition among a wide range of brewers. Winter Wheat Wine became the epitome of style until the brewery closed its doors in 2017. Despite the fact that today we no longer have the opportunity to taste the original wheatwine, many craft and home brewers use this style by trying their hand at the strongest wheat potato. By recreating the recipe according to Adam Necl - the winner of the Polish Home Brewers Championship in 2018 - we also present you this unique beer.
