MILWAUKEE (August 19, 2020) – Wisconsinite Summer Weiss beer was released back in April as Lakefront Brewery’s 2020 summer seasonal. However, due to sales being so high and the beer receiving such good praise, the Brewery is keeping it around all year.

“Our summer weiss is flavorful with its banana and clove notes and its fresh-baked bread sweetness,” said Lakefront Brand Manager, Michael Stodola. “It’s a unique beer with distinctive character that is beloved. We couldn’t let it go.”

Wisconsinite boasts local ingredients like Wisconsin-grown Two-Row Pale malt, Pale Wheat malt and Wisconsin-grown hops Santiam, Liberty, and Tahoma. “This is our state beer and we’re proud to build such solid refreshment from local farmers,” Stodola added.

Wisconsinite has 5% alcohol by volume and is medium-light in body and light gold in color. It can be purchased wherever Lakefront Brewery craft beer is sold.

Lakefront Brewery, Inc. distributes its products to over 30 states, Ukraine, South Korea, Sweden, China, Japan and Canada.
