Pour a sample of this and John’s Generations White Ale also featured this month so you can try a side by side comparison. The overall difference is that Alpine Wit is a drier, hoppier version of the style. Look for notes of cloves, earthy wild yeasts and wheat, with dry and peppery flourishes on the nose. On the palate, expect notes of candied orange peel, floral tones and hints of lavender, with a gentle spiciness provided by coriander, yeast and hops. Finishes peppery and lightly clovey. Try with Brie and grapes. Same beer style, two rather different beers—this is what microbrewed beer is all about—interpreting various styles of beer, and sometimes reinventing them. While John’s Generations White Ale is a more traditional witbier, Alpine Wit has a bit more of an American-style infusion, creating a beer that is a hybrid of a pale ale and a witbier.
The Joseph James Brewing Company is a family owned microbrewery located in Henderson, Nevada. Matthew Lisowksi & family have been in the beer distribution business for many years. The brewery was founded just a couple years ago to fill a demand for unique microbrewed beers. Their initial line up was pretty bold for a start up: a Belgian-style Wit, a Russian Imperial Stout, and a gluten-free beer so that sufferers of Celiac’s Disease, a condition that makes drinking products made with wheat or barely (i.e. beer) downright uncomfortable or even life-threatening, could again enjoy beer. A pretty niche line up, but again, their aim was to fill the gap of what was around and what they thought was missing from the scene. These days they’re brewing six year round styles and a handcrafted root beer. Matt’s little brother Joseph James Lisowski, 7 years old, enjoyed drinking many of the gourmet sodas Matt’s family’s distributorship received before the brewery was founded. One day Joseph poured a Root Beer into a mug, put a straw in it and declared to all within earshot “this is Joe’s Root Beer.” The name stuck and they named the root beer, “Joe’s Root Beer.” In honor of the creation of that first product, they named the brewery after young Joseph James. Truly a family brewery, the fox logo that appears on their website (www.foxbrews.com) and their beers is actually the top of the Lisowski family crest.
