Dove Runner Red Wheat

Celebrating a free-spirited and scandalous time when “Soiled Doves” bathed on the banks of the Arkansas and Chisolm trail cattlemen raised a ruckus in Wichita’s Delano district, Dove Runner is made with over 50% red wheat and enough roasted barley to make the color. This beer proves that all dark beer isn’t heavy. It starts with a slight roasted flavor that quickly subsides once you catch the fruity esters from the Bavarian Hefenweizen yeast. Some detect plum, banana, perhaps cloves, others pick up hints of bubblegum. It is a complex beer, loved by many.

ABV: 6.6% / IBU: 24

Bingo’s IPA

Bingo the pet bull normally hung out in the pasture, but one day he caught a whiff of some hoppy goodness and crashed the ranch picnic.

The result is floral and orange aromas, and a piney, resinous bitterness.
