A Note on This Beer
Lake Effect has a reputation for showcasing regional fruits, making them one of the most popular tap handles in the greater Chicago area. And one beer locals can’t get enough of is the Lake Huron Blueberry Berlinerweisse. This 5% ABV summer quencher is so bright and snappy it shines like violet lemonade and smells like a fresh-baked fruit tart.
Blueberries line the banks of Lake Huron like this tasty sipper lines your mouth. Boosted by Lacto sourness, the blueberry flavor is so alive you’ll check your tongue for purple fruit stains. Before you get caught in the blueberry patch, wheat softens the tartness like a flaky oat muffin coated with lemon icing.
Blueberry Berlinerweisse achieves its juice-packed flavor with oodles of local blueberries added directly into the boil and at second fermentation, making the blueberry flavor layered and complex. Sour-kettling makes it taste like a fruity lemon julep, the perfect blend of sweet, sour and smooth.
Break out this Chicago crowd favorite at your next summer gathering. Even if you’re still city-bound, you and your friends will feel like you’re chillin’ in a blueberry patch by the lakeside.
