A special KettleHouse brew has been released as a part of the “Craft for Causes” benefit for the Tedeschi Trucks Band: Wheels of Soul Summer Tour, scheduled to hit the new KettleHouse Amphitheater Wed, Aug 2nd.
Serving as remembrance to Gregg Allman, whom the music community lost recently, this special brew has been named Not My Wheat To Bear after the Allman Brothers classic, “Not My Cross To Bear” (listen here and below).
Fun Fact: Derek Trucks, husband and slide-guitarist, was raised in The Allman Brother’s family (nephew of drummer Butch Trucks) and has been listed in the top twenty guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine.
The brewer notes:
“This brew is built with 50 percent wheat. Tedeschi Trucks, Wood Brothers, and Hot Tuna music really pops, so we added a bunch of fruity refreshing hops to make this beer pop! It is a hoppy wheat, but almost an ipa/wheat hybrid. A true American style which pairs perfectly with the American music on the Wheel Of Souls Tour… Cheers.” -KettleHouse Brewery
Craft for Causes works with breweries in live music communities to benefit local philanthropies. This time, the result is a hoppy brew that will benefit Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation; helping bring instruments to underfunded music programs. One dollar from each $5 pint will go to support the cause.
Support music education, local breweries and Grammy award-winning music all in one glass. More information on the Tedeschi Trucks Band show can be found on the event page.
