When it came time to make a wheat beer, Nola decided to make something with a strong sense of place. This would be their summer beer, so it needed to be exceptionally light and refreshing (which you’ll understand if you’ve ever lived through a New Orleans summer). The same sense of place is reflected in the fresh lemon basil they add post fermentation. It grows year-round in New Orleans backyards, and Nola uses it to impart a light citrus taste with a subtle herbal hint. Finally, Nola named the beer after the 7thStreet Wharf across the street from the brewery. 7th Street Wheat was an instant hit and the once summer seasonal has earned a spot in our year-round lineup.
