Victory Brewing Company Chalks Up Berliner Weisse with Elderflower

No. Three in Blackboard Series Bringing

Culinary Concepts from Blackboard to Bottles & Taps

Victory Brewing Company (Victory) announces a refreshing Berliner Weisse with Elderflower as part of its creative Blackboard Series that profiles marrying craft beer with market-fresh produce similar to specials found on a blackboard in restaurants. The series, alternates innovative creations every three months, encouraging craft beer fans to taste what the brewers are cooking up with fresh and surprising ingredients.

The third special in the series, a Berliner Weisse with Elderflower, is a seasonally hazy tart wheat ale brewed with Hallertauer Hallertau hops and combines woody, spicy and vanilla notes to create a fluffy white foam and a floral, mildly sweet finish. Available from July through December, Berliner Weisse with Elderflower can be purchased throughout Victory’s 37-state distribution footprint for a suggested retail price of $9.99 for a 4-pack of 12 oz. bottles.

The first beer of the series, Agave IPA with Grapefruit, was introduced in January and was brewed with four variations of American hops that produced a delicious brew with a light citric bite, strong and bitter aromas against sweet agave and seasonal grapefruit. Following Agave IPA, the second beer of the series was a Dry-Hopped Pils embracing spicy aromas with a bit of Brettanomyces funk in the form of a hop heavy draft available April to June. Following the Berliner Weisse, the series will wrap with the introduction of a smoothly alluring Oatmeal Porter with Hazelnut available in draft from October through December.

All three Victory Brewpubs – Downingtown, Kennett Square and Parkesburg, PA, serve complementing culinary creations perfectly suited to each distinct brew in the spirit of celebrating the creativity and ingenuity of the kitchen and the brew kettle. While Victory will always serve their popular, hop-forward brands and equally delicious fare, they know this series will continue to excite the palates of craft beer and brewpub fans alike.

“Like a special at your favorite restaurant or brewpub, the Blackboard series was created to challenge our team of Brewers and Chefs and to extend that challenge to our fans, offering them the opportunity to enjoy a brew made with fresh seasonal ingredients that takes them down a different path than expected,” said Victory’s Founder and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “Combining tradition and ingenuity is a founding principle at Victory, we are quite proud and think the entire goal of the Blackboard Series is a vivid, and delicious, example of what we do here all the time.”
