10 Great California Wheat Beers

Top 10 California

Food GPS beer editor Sean Inman chooses 10 great California beers by style.


6. Wiens BrewingHoney Wheat has an addition of local Avocado Blossom Honey to create a clean and crisp beer for the hot summer in Temecula (and elsewhere).  And it will make a good comparison to the next beer on the list…

7. Pacific Plate BrewingAgave Wheat takes the classic American-style wheat beer “brewed with agave syrup which is extracted from the roots of the Agave plant.”  Toss in some light hops and you get a summer refresher.

8. Beach City Brewery – Overcast Summer Wheat, from one of the newest brewing operations in the L.A. area, combines a “wheat sweetness with a tropical kick of mango and melon thanks to a dry hop with the yet to be named HBC 342.”

9. Anchor Brewing – Summer Beer is a seasonal release that may slip through the cracks after their brand new releases of IPA and Saison, but this is a California classic brewed since the mid 1980’s.

10. North Coast BrewingBlue Star – Another passed-by option on the shelves, maybe because everyone has had this beer early in their craft beer conversion.  But Blue Star is a solid example of the style without many bells and whistles.
