With the arrival of the summer solstice Albuquerque is blessed once again with the return of Marble’s White Out. White Out is a Witbier that uses the popular ‘Double White’s” blend with the addition of coriander and curacao orange peel. It’s 9% as opposed to it’s 7% sister beer ‘Double White’. The White Out release party was paired with musical accompaniment by The Daily Grind, an alternative rock band from Pittsburgh that brought in the summer vibes all afternoon.
Pale and hazy in a 16oz glass I thought it’d be a waste not to pair it with food by local food truck My Sweet Basil. The pint of White Out and a mint caprese burger paired beautiful combining savory bites with spicy, citrusy sips.
Marble (111 Marble Ave NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102) is consistently releasing quality seasonal and one-off brews and is a place all local beer drinkers should visit. This Thursday they will have a soft-opening of their rooftop for member’s of the brew club. On Friday July 1st, the public can enjoy a beautiful 360 view of downtown Albuquerque and the Sandia Mountains.
