Baaad Boy Black Wheat
brewed by the 3 Sheeps Brewing Company in Sheboygan, Wisconsin
Beneath Baaad Boy Black Wheat's rich, dark exterior and cascading
head, you will find a classic unfiltered wheat presentation fused
with the smooth, roasty, chocolate-like characteristics of the dark
wheat malt. With a finish this unnervingly smooth, you're going to
want to give this Baaad Boy a second chance...and third...and so on.
ABV: 5.50% ABV 13 IBUs
Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - The brew is dark, dark brown with only a hint of light
getting through. Not much head is seen, just a half-finger of
short-lived brown foam that leaves no lacing.
Aroma - As you might expect from the dark color, the smell is full
of roasted flavors like char and chocolate. There is also some wheat
and a wet grain smell that is strangely off-putting but inviting at
the same time.
Taste - The taste is packe with more roasted flavors that border on
acrid and would pass for a porter in many circles. Char, smoke, and
dark chocolate malts play against the aforementioned wet grain
taste. You know you're drinking a wheat beer, but the stout-like
darkness keeps suggesting otherwise. The result is complex and
Mouthfeel - The brew is moderate to light weight with lighter levels
Overall - This is a pretty unique beer with way more flavors going
on than I would have expected. This brew was a nice departure from
the standard IPA or my recent hefe obsession.
Family Brewing History of
All families have their stories: tales of grandparents and
great-grandparents and the incredible things they accomplished, or
lived through, or overcame. My family was no different. I grew up
hearing stories that cascaded across a broad plain of topics, but
the ones that fascinated me most centered around the Kingsbury
Back in 1926, the Kingsbury Breweries, then known as the
Gutsch Brewery, declared bankruptcy. It was a tough time for
breweries across the country as Prohibition was in full effect. Many
breweries failed during that time, and the Gutsch Brewery was on its
way to joining them. It was at this time that my family took the
helm of the brewery. Soon after, they changed the name to the
Kingsbury Breweries, expanded coast-to-coast, and turned the brewery
into what we remember it as today.
I grew up hearing stories from my father, who, as a child
with his father, would go around the various Kingsbury Breweries,
see the brewers hard at work, and watch the customers enjoy a beer
in the Ratskeller. This is where my interest was first piqued by the
great world of beer. Many years later, thanks to a brilliant gift on
my wife’s part, I started making my own beer. From that point
forward there was no turning back. The hobby turned into a passion,
which turned into an obsession, which turned into quitting my day
job and opening a brewery.
