Monon – Wheat
Years ago whilst pierced the air and the ground literally shook from the power steam. The Monon Railroad helped propel Indiana’s economy from 1897 – 1956 and earned its name from the convergence of its four main routes in Monon, Indiana. From Monon, the mainlines reached Chicago, Louisville, Indianapolis, Michigan City, and most towns in between.
Our refreshing Belgian style Wit beer is powered by the memories of the Monon and brewed with lemon peel, orange peel, and coriander for a crisp, tart finish. For an extremly refreshing and drinkable beer, hard working cutters say “All aboard!” the Monon.
Monon Wheat Key Statistics
- 1.056 OG
- 14.8 IBU
- 5.4% ABV
A Belgian style ale that’s very pale and cloudy in appearance due to it being unfiltered and the high level of wheat used in the mash. Spiced with coriander, orange peel and lemon peel for a crisp, bright finish. The crispness and slight twang comes from the Belgian yeast and a high level of carbonation. Sometimes served with a lemon, although we’d recommend that you ask for yours without one.
