Sitting on a deck over water and eating fresh seafood is a special privilege of being from the Jersey Shore. Doing exactly that one sunny day, The Wit Whale occurred to us. Having grown up alongside schnitzel, we knew that the esters of classic wit yeast would associate well with the crunch of fisherman’s platters, while a drinkable malt bill of 50% wheat and 50% pilsner would accompany the sweetness of the fish themselves. We relied on the mineral profile of our water, dressed-up with lemony Sorachi Ace and grassy Summer hops to play with the richness of shellfish. Drink The Wit Whale because you have a basket of fish in front of you, and you can see the water where it was caught.
