Swedesboro was once known for producing so much wheat that in the 1700s it was given the nickname “The Breadbasket.” Since most of the wheat was exported to European countries like Germany, our Wheat Beer is our tribute to the traditional wheat-based hefeweizen of Bavaria.
Our Breadbasket is a perfect selection for those seeking a beer with a lighter body that remains full of flavor.
The smoothness of Breadbasket Wheat Beer pairs extremely well with very light foods such as salads, vegetable dishes, or sushi, as well as with light cheeses such as Italian-style mascarpone and ricotta. It is generally too light for dessert but could pair with fresh berries or a fruit-based dessert.
Suggested Foods: Salads or Sushi
Cheese: Buffalo Mozzarella or Ricotta Cheese
Dessert: Fresh Berries or Banana Pound Cake
