WHITE DUNES

A Belgian white. Pure refreshment. Hints of spice and citrus.

 

In South Walton we are home to a rare collection of 15 coastal dune lakes surrounded by white sand dunes that serve to store and filter water, eventually releasing their contents into the Gulf of Mexico. Found in only a handful of places around the world, we thought their ecological importance and rarity deserved to be honored with the name of our Witbier. 

White Dunes offers a unique relationship between complexity and refreshment. The color and body of this beer give way for having more than one, while the aroma and flavor profiles will fully engage the pallet in every way.

This beer achieves its unique mouthfeel and beautiful hazy color from malted wheat. The initial floral nuance slowly morphs to citrus with every sip. The medium body, signature tartness and unique spice and fruit characteristics, produce a highly complex drinking experience.

Pairing: The signature tartness will match well with the acidity of salads, medium to light textured fish, and rich creamy desserts.

SALT OF THE GULF

Our coastal interpretation of a unique / antiquated German style.

 

Medieval German tradition and the Emerald Coast -- the ultimate aromatic and thirst-quenching mash up. A lively brew that's spicy, tart, fruity, and imbued with briny coastal breezes. The secret ingredient: salt harvested from the Gulf of Mexico by Gulf Coast Saltworks.

Fermented with both lactobacillus and ale yeast, this brew boats a bevy of juxtaposed flavors. The low pH during fermentation causes the yeast to create unusual esters remise of apricots and peaches while the spicy citrus characters stem from the coriander added to the whirlpool.

Pairing: Traditionally, this style would have been enjoyed by the gallon with rich German pork and potato dishes. The acidity and citrus help to cut through these fatty dishes. These elements also offer a wonderful compliment to creamy deserts such as cheesecake or bread pudding.
