My family took a day trip to Green Bay while visiting my in-laws, and I briefly considered adding Hinterland's brewery restaurant to our itinerary. Then I looked at their website and realized it was clearly no place to take a 9 and 3 year old that fight constantly, so we settled for Old Chicago Pizza instead. Thankfully, their 110 beers included Hinterland's Honey Wheat. For most Midwesterners, as fancy a beer as they go for is Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss, so it's a good idea for Hinterland to include that. Of course, the style is not exactly aggressive nor challenging. It's a light summer wheat beer, with a slight hint of lemon, zero bitterness, and a light sweetness. Not a bad beer to go with a Chicago-style pizza after a day at an amusement park. I will say this, it did seem to have more alcohol than the style normally includes. It does make me want to see what else Hinterland has on tap, but that will have to wait for another year. See, I also had my MIL take a picture of me giving the finger to Lambeau Field, so we need a year before we can come back to the Green Bay area.
