Spring is in the air, so it’s time to tip a pint. Specifically, Due South Brewing Company, a Boynton Beach, Fl., based production brewery, on May 4 (at 3 p.m.) will release a new Honey Vanilla Wheat craft beer.
The brewery will host a launch party for the public from 6 – 8 p.m. on May 4, before Brown Distributing in South Florida begins delivery of the new Honey Vanilla Wheat to Total Wine & More, and ABC Fine Liquors and Wines, and scores of other retail outlets and restaurants.
The launch party in the brewery’s tap room will have contests, prizes, live music and food for purchase from Tres Taco Gourmet food truck.
Honey Vanilla Wheat is an American-style wheat ale brewed with 100 pounds of local Palmetto honey from Palm Beach Creamed Honey and finished with vanilla. The company says these ingredients create an effortlessly enjoyable brew with a clean brightness from honey, pillowy mouthfeel from wheat, and a subtle sweetness from vanilla.
“This beer is a favorite of our locals,” says Doug Fairall, Brand Marketing Manager at Due South Brewing Company. “Whenever we brew this special beer, we source honey made by bees in South Florida. The result is not only better from a flavor perspective, creating a unique terroir with ingredients, but also from an environmental and economic perspective. We’re not shipping honey from out of state and eating up all that fuel, and we’re also supporting another local business.”
Honey Vanilla Wheat will be available on draft and in 12-ounce cans as a four pack through the Due South Brewing taproom. The beer will head to distribution on May 6 through Brown Distributing in South Florida and Sunshine State Distributing in Central Florida.
Due South is an independent, Veteran owned, craft brewery with beer in more than 1,000 stores, bars and restaurants from Orlando to Key West and in the Florida Panhandle. Each beer is made in Boynton Beach. The brewery is housed in a 27,000 square foot warehouse where dozens of beers are produced throughout the year.
