Give msomething for thman who doesnhavto try too hard...
 
The dudes at New Wave approached us to brew this beer for their 2nd Anniversary. The resulting recipe is a mind-meld based upon a tasting session of different Vienna Lagers and burritos. We decided upon Ancho and smoked malt and salt to lend that rich, earthy spice along with spices common in Mexican cuisine: cinnamon, cumin and coriander. We then brought the heat and a zesty fruitiness with Chocolate Habeneros and limes. As key to the New Wave mentality as delicious ingredients is a love of their namesake post-punk genre, so we didnt give them any trouble when they suggested the name...
