Alpine Beer Willy Vanilly

I’d never heard of Alpine Beer Co.  A little research reveals they are a small brewery in California.  This beer, Willy Vanilly, isn’t’ listed on their website and appears to be a short run brew.  Their regular wheat beer is called Willy, so this beer appears to just be a variation on it.

A very nice beer, all in all.  A good wheat.  Not hoppy.  Very smooth with a whisper of vanilla taste, but not much.

This sounds interesting, if a bit far into the future.  I’ll be interested to see if they can pull it off.
