OBC Idle Wind and Wheels of Soul APA Release Party/Tedeschi Trucks Soulful Brew 2016

Join us with Orono Brewing Company as they release Idle Wind & Wheels of Soul in Portland, only at The Thirsty Pig!

Idle Wind was brewed by Orono Brewing Company for Tedeschi Trucks. Wheels of Soul APA is a collab with Geaghan's, Gneiss, OBC and Rising Tide for Tedeschi Trucks. 


Idle Wind Wit
ABV: 5.2% IBU:16 

Belgian Style Wit Beer with blood orange and peach additions in honor of Tedeschi Trucks Southern roots. Subtle peach notes, smooth mouthfeel, and refreshing citrus flavor make this the perfect choice for a warm summer day. 

"Wheels of Soul" American Pale Ale
ABV: 6.2 % IBU: 48
The result of four great Maine breweries collaborating on a easy drinking, flavorful pale ale that is the official beer of Wheels of Soul in Maine. This collaboration is a dry, balanced, and unique American Pale Ale featuringsome of the newer hop varieties. The use of Warrior, Azacca, and Ella hops create a not too sweet fruit flavor with a light bitterness that compliments the grain from our friends at Maine Malt House in Mapleton, ME. 

Waterfront Concerts along with four of the finest craft brewing companies in Maine; Geaghan’s Brothers, Orono Brewing Company, Gneiss Brewing Company and Rising Tide have joined forces to bring you The Soulful Brew Collaboration as an added component to the Wheels of Soul Tour featuring Tedeschi Trucks Band, Los Lobos and North Mississippi Allstars that will take place at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion on Friday, July 15th!

The brewers worked directly with the tour and have paired up to name and create a specialty release beer for each of the bands on the tour as well as having all four of the breweries collaborate on and official Wheels of Soul Tour specialty release.

The "Wheels of Soul" APA collab beer brewed between all four breweries will also be on hand for each event. But the only time you can try all four brews at the same time, will be at the Wheels of Soul concert.
