Brooklyn Greenmarket WheatFind it near you
Brooklyn Greenmarket Wheat is a celebration of New York State agriculture, uniting local ingredients to create a beer with a mission.
We work with GrowNYC's Greenmarket to source grain for the brew - they connected us to North Country Farms in Watertown, NY to provide 70% of the grain used in our mash. The hops are grown on a family farm outside of Syracuse owned by our own Technical Director Mary Wiles, who grew up there.
Our brewers take raw wheat, malted barley, Mary's hops, and Bavarian yeast and unite them into an unfiltered beer with light fruit flavors and a zesty palate. It's great with foods from fresh salads to grilled meats. Proceeds from the beer sales support GrowNYC's mission to revive New York's grain industry and provide support to family farms, farmers markets, community gardens and other agricultural projects. It's a New York beer, from New York farms, and now it's all yours.
