Shock Top is a traditional Belgian-Style wheat ale. We first introduced ourselves to the world in 2006 as a seasonal brew under the name Spring Heat Spiced Wheat. After winning a gold medal in 2006 and bronze medal in 2007 in the Belgian White category at the North American Beer Awards, we decided that it was only right to bring it to the people year-round. And since calling it Spring Heat didn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense in the middle of November (or July, for that matter), we changed our name to Shock Top.
