South Street Brewery is Charlottesville’s longest-running brewery and pub. The brewery was recently “born again” when South Street Brewery was purchased in 2014 by Blue Mountain Brewery.

Blue Mountain’s owners both have a deep connection with South Street. They both worked for South Street over a decade ago. In fact, Blue Mountain’s Taylor Smack was the brewer at South Street from late 2001 until early 2007.

With this rebirth, South Street Brewery has expanded beer offerings, including many loved originals that helped shape the Central Virginia beer scene, and new beers reflecting the diversity and experimentation that is at the center of American craft brewing today.

One of those experiments is this Gose/Witbier Hybrid beer. Slippery When Wit is light, sour, and salty. It is brewed with floor-malted Pils malt, wheat and carahell malts, and flaked oats. German Tradition hops, Coriander, Himalayan salt, dried orange peel, and local-honey-soaked candied oranges are added during the brewing process. It is fermented with Lactobacillus and witbier ale yeast.
