Upland Haystack Lightning American Wheat up next in Side Trail Series
Press Release: (Bloomington, IN) – Upland Brewing Company announced today Haystack Lightning American Wheat , the second beer in the brewers’ choice Side Trail Series, will be ready for draft release the first week of April. This draft-only Americanized version of brewing company’s flagship Belgian Wheat Ale will be on tap at all Upland locations on Friday April 4th and at select bars and restaurants across Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Chicago in the following weeks. While inspired by Upland Wheat Ale, Haystack Lightning forges its own identity with American yeast and citrusy hops that set it apart from its cloudy, spiced muse. The beer features Caracrystal Wheat Malt, Amarillo Whole Leaf hops, and is dry hopped with Amarillo and Columbus. Filtered to a brilliant clarity, the result is a clean, medium-bodied beer with a mild caramel sweetness. Haystack Lightning maintains the light, refreshing citrus qualities of Upland Wheat, but adds more hop character and a distinct grainy flavor.
