Five & 20 Spirits and Brewing will release their popular season offering Lim Wit Radler in cans for the first time ever at the brewery on May 16. It will also be available at select retail locations the following week. It had previously only been available in bottles and on draft. It will be available to-go in 6-pack 12oz. cans ($11) and by the case (24 cans, $44). Singles cans ($2.50) cans also be purchased for on-site consumption at the brewery.
Lim Wit Radler, a light & refreshing hazy blonde hefeweizen blended with lime, is brewed with NY Pale malt, malted barley and malted wheat, NY Cascade and Perle hops, traditional hefeweizen yeast and Bitterman’s A Very Friendly and Cordial Lime all natural cocktail syrup.
“This beer is a hazy, golden wheat ale, highly carbonated with a semi-thick white head,” the brewery says of the beer. “Lim Wit has an aroma that starts like a traditional hefeweizen with notes of banana and clove, and it finishes with a light lime. It also has banana and clove flavor to begin, finishing with a slightly tart lime and a lightly refreshing mouthfeel.”
Lim Wit cans will be released during Five & 20’s first Pint Night of the season. The event will feature draft specials, food by Bird, and (a good chance of) live music. Last call for sales is at 8pm (close at 8:30). No outside alcoholic beverages or food allowed. Pint Nights will continue every Thursday 5-8 pm through September. Bird will be open Thursdays-Sundays from noon-close (fiveand20.com for hours).
Then, on May 19, Five & 20 will hold their Sunday Sesh with the Division Street Machine (1-4pm), a relaxed Sunday afternoon featuring live, local music. Bring a chair or blanket, invite your family and friends, and sit back and enjoy the sounds while sipping a beer or wine from Mazza Wines. The Division Street Machine is a four-piece band hailing from Northeast, PA, playing an eclectic mix of relate-able original music with a funky blues feel.
“This [Lim Wit] is our take on the traditional Radler, a light and refreshing ‘beer cocktail,” Five & 20 adds of Lim Wit.
