NewsJust in time for summer, the often mention Rustico has gotten in a little hot water with the state of Virgina for making beer Popsicles. Apparently you have to serve the beer as soon as it is poured in the state of VA, which makes freezing it on a stick kind of tough.
- Made at Three Flyods Brewing Company in Munster, Indiana which is a rather small but well thought of brewery. It opened in 1996 in Hammond Indiana, but made the move to the new place in 2000 to increase capacity for their tasty beers.
- Distribution is small, only ten states; Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia , Wisconsin
- As for the beer, it is classified as an American Pale Wheat Ale, which is a little off from the hefeweizen class that we have been looking at, but we will call it close enough. It’s only about 4.8% abv and is not available year round.
- The taste, well is a little bit different than the past few that we have had here. It is a lot more hoppy, or bitter, in my opinion, which is something that you usually do not get in a wheat beer. However that being said, you also still have the banana aroma and some of the spice characteristics that we have seen the last few weeks.
