Potosi Wee Stein Wit

The Potosi Brewing Co. is located in the southwestern corner of Wisconsin. The original Potosi Brewery dates back to 1852 and continued operating until it shut its doors in 1972. The property was purchased in 1995 and plans began to restore the Potosi Brewery Bottling Buildings. In 2000 the Potosi Brewery Foundation was established and in 2008 the Potosi Brewing Co. reopened after a $7.5 million renovation effort had been completed.

This year two summer seasonals were bottled, Steamboat Shandy and Wee Stein Wit. The Shandy is a blend of their Good Old Potosi ale mixed with cane sugar and lemon juice. Think of it as beer lemonade, and on a hot day it goes down really smooth.

Wee Stein Wit, a brand new offering, is a Belgian style white ale. It pours a cloudy yellow in color with a white head. The aroma has hints of citrus and spicy clove. The taste has a nice refreshing wheat malt flavor with some orange citrus, coriander, and a slight lemony tang. The body has a decent amount of carbonation.

I’ve had a few offerings (the Cave Ale and Snake Hollow IPA) from the Potosi Brewing Co. and they’ve all been very solid. Wee Stein Wit is a great example of the style and definitely something I’d look for again next year.
