Batch 21

Whitesnake Wheat - Wheat Beer - Brewed 4/18/15

Explaining the Name

When they first started dating, Chris had a tough time gauging Kari's interest level after the first 2-3 dates. He knew he liked her, but wasn't sure if she felt the same. He might have given up and not asked her out again, but then he won tickets to see the iconic 80s hair metal band, Whitesnake. When he asked if she was interested in going, Chris was pleasantly surprised by Kari's enthusiastic response. They went to the concert where they engaged in some amazing people-watching, sang along loudly, and laughed at lead singer David Coverdale's stage antics. The rest is history. Thanks, Whitesnake!
