Day 119 Drink: Natty Greene's Wildflower Wit
Greensboro, N.C., is named for Nathaniel Greene, a hero of the American revolution. Greene entered the war as a private in the militia, but by the end of the war he was a major General in the Continental Army.
Natty Greene's Brewing is located on Elm Street not far from the statue that honors Gen. Greene. The menu has a number of great sandwiches and I'd highly recommend The Cohiba, a classic Cuban sandwich. The brewpub has two levels of seating, a party room on the third floor, plus an outdoor patio.
Natty Greene's Wildflower Witbier pours a nice hazy yellow with a fluffy white crown. The beer has a slightly spicy citrus aroma. The beer has a good level of citrus in the flavor bed, with an attractive crispness. The hops add depth to this witbier.
