Stegmaier Midsummer White - Press Release

The Lion Brewery proudly announces the annual release of its warm weather seasonal Stegmaier Midsummer White

WILKES-BARRE, PA – April 7, 2008. The Lion Brewery, Inc., located in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, proudly announces its second season of producing Stegmaier Midsummer White. With the changing of the seasons just around the corner, the Lion Brewery will produce our ever-popular Stegmaier Midsummer White this week. Stegmaier Midsummer White will be available in limited quantity on Tuesday, April 8, 2008 and will remain on the market while supplies last.
This Belgian-Style Wheat Ale, Stegmaier Midsummer White, traditionally known as Witbier, boasts a dense, pale-straw color with a velvety white head. In blending the finest two-row pale and white wheat malt, our brewers were able to capture sweetness with a zesty orange-citrus flavor by introducing unique spices and hops to the brew. Crisp and refreshing, it’s the ideal beer to share and enjoy with friends and neighbors. Cheers!
Our specially designed packaging and point of sale material featuring the Stegmaier Crest as it displays a picturesque view of rolling hills and valleys basking in the warmth of the summer sun, has been integrated into the Stegmaier Midsummer White design. Stegmaier Midsummer White will be available for purchase in your favorite distributor and tavern.
