Yet another cost-efficient wit that is better than its price indicates. It's a bit sweeter than other wits and finishes with a bit more spice thanks to a healthy helping of ginger, but it's fairly mild and loaded with lemon and orange flavor. Like Widmer Brothers, Redhook is distributed and partially owned by A-B InBev. Also like Widmer, that relationship helps keep the costs down and the beer easy to find. Their snub-nosed bottles also make great conversation pieces when they share a cooler with a shiny 30 pack or generic brown-bottle brews. -- Written by Jason Notte in Boston.
