Here's our brew of the week - a seasonal from Abita - Lemon Wheat.
Lemon Wheat (May-September) is a crisp, refreshing beer made with lemon peel for a fresh citrus taste and aroma. This unfiltered brew has a hazy, golden color and is made with lager and wheat malts, Centennial hops and Biere de Garde yeast. This brew is an excellent choice with many dishes. It pairs wonderfully with salads if the dressing is not too sweet. Great with shrimp, lobster or any fish, even the most delicate.
Suggested temperature: 41°
Suggested glassware: wheat, flute or tulip

Bigger, bolder, and hoppier is what you get in Green Flash's Imperial Red Rye IPA. This is quite possibly the most amount of flavor that can be packed into a glass of red ale. Columbus hops set the stage for the newly available Mosaic hops (released in 2013) to shine through the rich crystal malt base and a touch of rye malt adds a spicy dryness to accentuate the hop character further.
8.5% ABV, 80 IBU, Hops used: Columbus and Mosaic
