I guess I have something to look forward to this summer...
Wheat beers are traditionally brewed only in the summer months, fall harvest, etc.
I remember when O'dells only sold Sunshine Wheat during the Summer, early Fall months.
I think that due to Wheat beer's popularity, it started making sense to sell it year 'round.
