NEW ORLEANS — NOLA Brewing invites you to splash into summer with the release of “Tangerine Wheat,” a new Summer seasonal. The newest of 4 seasonal releases each year is making its debut during NOLA Brewing’s Cosmic Crawfish Ball on May 1st and will be hitting markets where NOLA is distributed shortly after.
Tangerine Wheat was designed with New Orleans Summers in mind. Summertime in New Orleans means it’s really hot outside. Like really hot outside. To help beat the heat, NOLA created Tangerine Wheat to refresh the body and take the edge off. This beer doesn’t hold back on the fruit, so if you’re looking for a citrusy refreshment, NOLA Brewing’s got it taken care of for you.
“We released this beer as a specialty, small-batch beer in summer last year and gained a lot of fans very quickly,” says Dylan Lintern, President/COO of NOLA Brewing. “It’s just such a good fit for a summer beer, it was an easy decision to release it as a Summer seasonal so we can brew more to reach more potential fans. “
As the Summer Seasonal, Tangerine Wheat should be available through the end of August. The NOLA Brewing Tap Room will serve the beer on May 1, 2019 to patrons attending the Cosmic Crawfish Ball. Like all of NOLA’s seasonals, it will then be available in craft beer bars and retailers throughout their distribution portfolio including Louisiana, Texas, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
