Launch & Chat Garrison Brewing 2012 NiT-WiT Belgian Style Wheat Beer

The awesome folks at Garrison Brewing allowed me to drop in on a busy day; the 2012 launch of NiT-WiT. 



This is a 4.8% ABV Belgian Style Wheat Beer, a 2010 winner of Garrison’s Ultimate Brew-Off Competition and a 2011 Bronze medal winner at the Canadian Brewing Awards.


I chatted with Brian Titus, president of Garrison and asked a few questions about Nit-Wit, the Brew-Off and some of the challenges of brining these beers to market.


There are a few news bombs peppered within the video, so pay close attention as you’ll learn what Garrison has planned for the next year.
