About XX Mountainberry Double Wheat
Twenty years ago Charlie Otto began making beer in Wyoming’s first modern brewery, a 210 square foot cabin in Jackson Hole. Since then, Grand Teton Brewing Company has grown into its present 11,000 square foot facility in Victor, Idaho, winning dozens of major awards and bringing innovations like the reusable glass growler to the brewing world. To commemorate that twenty-year history, Grand Teton’s brewers have chose four of their year-round beers—three current, one historical—to strengthen and enhance. XX Mountainberry Double Wheat Ale was the second release in our 2008 XX series. Grand Teton’s 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. 2008's celebratory version is bigger in every way—more than double the original’s 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.
