Wheat beers, particularly Grasshopper, are known for their versatility. Grasshopper pairs well with foods like grilled chicken, smoked fish and barbecue shrimp kabobs.
The Naked Woodsman Pale Ale grows more complex, unraveling more flavours the longer you savour it. Notes of fresh bread and light caramel malt flavours mix with bright floral, grapefruit and orange hop aromatics.

It finishes with a star of anise spiciness that makes you think this somewhat fruit-forward brew could be paired with herb-crusted chicken for dinner, and also with lemon tart for dessert.
