Mayflower Brewing Co. Releases Peregrine, A Witbier at 5% ABV
PRESS RELEASE / JUNE 27, 2018 (Plymouth, MA) Mayflower Brewing is pleased to release Peregrine. It is a refreshing Witbier with an inviting cloudy appearance from being an unfiltered offering. Pilsner, Wheat, and Oats provide an aroma of baked bread on this creamy, full bodied brew. The traditional additions of coriander and orange poke through with orange jam and lemon/lime notes. These flavors play off the Sorachi Ace dry hop that provides notes of lemon peel, lemon curd, and lemon grass.
“As we thought about brewing a white beer, or witbier as it’s called in Belgium, we decided it would be fun to name it after, Peregrine White, the first baby born on the Mayflower in Cape Cod harbor and the first child born to the Pilgrims in America”, said Drew Brosseau. “The fact that his name is the same as a really cool bird of prey makes it even better.”
Peregrine is on tap today in the Mayflower tasting room at 4pm for tastings, flights, pints, and growler fills. 4 packs of 16 ounce cans will be available while they last. Peregrine will be heading out into the New England market as well.
