One Mile Round from Southern Peak Brewery

Flavor: This German-style pale wheat beer is crisp and refreshing — perfect for North Carolina summers — with a straw-like color and a hazy appearance. In flavor, the wheat grabs you on the front, and the honey pulls you in for the finish. The higher level of carbonation increases its refreshing quality.

Southern Peak works hard to make sure its beers are consistent from batch to batch — except for One Mile Round. The local honey is sourced from certified bee keepers, and the pollen that the bees collect changes the honey. One beekeeper may have a spicier or more floral end product than the apiarist down the road.

Honey has the power to overwhelm in a brewhouse. It can come across as either super dry or sweet and syrupy. This honey was used by a deft hand and imparts floral notes while making sure the final product is crisp and flavorful.

History: The name One Mile Round is a nod to the “Biermeilie,” a privilege to brew and sell beer within a certain district in Cottbus, Germany, where this style of beer, called a Kottbusser, is from.

In 1877 Kottbusser beer became illegal in Germany because beer purity laws limited the ingredients for bottom and top fermenting beers, and neither process allows for the use of honey. In many ways, a Kottbusser represents what we see every day in the American craft beer industry: a rediscovery of lost styles.
