What is a Phase Shift? 

With regard to wave motion, a phase shift represents the amount a wave has shifted horizontally from the original wave. Because the horizontal axis denotes time, a phase shift represents a shift in time from the original wave. The signal in a circuit, for example, will have some phase shift between the input and the output.

We think this definition exemplifies the shift in the flavor and form of our beers over a period of time when aged in barrels.

Phase Shift 01 // Tequila Barrel Aged Watts Wheat Wine

We first brewed our Watts Wheat Wine for our first anniversary in June 2015. It is a flavor-packed and complex wheat wine brewed with honey, chamomile, peppercorn, coriander, and orange peel. It is smooth, delicious, and dangerous, ringing in at 9.4% ABV! We decided it was time to take it to the next level in November 2015, when we acquired 2 tequila barrels and knew the Watts would be a perfect marriage. The rest is history.
