Erie Sunshine Wit ( Erie, PA )

While the brewery calls this hazy, light yellow beer a Witbier, it might more fairly be characterized as a light American Wheat Beer due the lack of spices in either the nose or flavor. Easy drinking, a good thirst-quencher, but not as advertised.

Erie Brewing Company
The modern day Erie Brewing Company opened in January 1994 as part of Hoppers Brew Pub in Union State. In 1999, it broke away to become a brewery in its own right, adding bottling capability. The original Erie Brewing company was founded in 1889 and closed in 1976. It had the Koehler, Olde Pub, Imperial brands and in the last part of its history when the Iroquois Brewery closed, it took over that brand.
