XXMountainberry Double Wheat Ale

Grand Teton Brewing Company, known throughout the West for
their exceptional microbrews, has introduced their XX Mountainberry Double
Wheat Ale, the latest in their ³Cellar Reserve² series of specialty beers XX
Mountainberry Double Wheat Ale will be available in kegs and 1 liter,
flip-top bottles.

Grand Teton¹s original fruit beer, Huckleberry Wheat, was brewed for about
five years beginning more than a decade ago. It was light and sparkly, with
just a hint of sweet-tart mountain huckleberry.

This year¹s celebratory version is bigger in every way‹more than double the
original¹s malt, fermented to 7.6% alcohol by volume, then flavored with
more than a pound per gallon of fresh Pacific Northwest huckleberries,
blueberries and marionberries.

Bold and flavorful, XX Mountainberry Double Wheat makes a wonderful
aperitif, or try it with a balsamic vinaigrette salad, glazed ham, duck a
l¹orange or fruity dessert.

The Cellar Reserve series of beers are unique from average beers and even
from other micro beers. Grand Teton¹s Cellar Reserves are brewed with
specialty grains and more unusual ingredients than most micro brewed beers.
Most ales and lagers are produced in 2-4 weeks. However, 3 to 8 months are
spent on each of the Cellar Reserve specialty brews. They are also bottle
and cask conditioned, which produces natural carbonation and will blend and
smooth the flavors with age. These beers have a long shelf life and don¹t
have to be rapidly consumed. Proper aging of these bottles creates beers to
be cherished.

Grand Teton Brewing releases four or five different beers a year in the
Cellar Reserve line. The production quantity is very limited. The
Mountainberry Double Wheat Ale is available in kegs and unique brown
one-liter bottles, with captivating silver and gold labels. Each bottle has
a flip-top and wire bale lid that has been sealed in colored wax.

The XX Mountainberry Double Wheat Ale will be available this month at select
locations in Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, California, Oregon, Montana,
Washington and now New York! Call the brewery at 1-888-899-1656 for
information and availability on this exciting new product. Watch for our
next Cellar Reserve beer, 20th Anniversary edition XX Au Naturale Double Red
Ale early this autumn.
