Bitter Minnesota Beer of the Week – Tin Whiskers Wheatstone Bridge

John F

John Fillman


Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuit.  It's also a beer you can get at St. Paul's Tin Whiskers Brewing, founded by a trio of electrical engineers who decided to combine their love of science and craft beer. This American style wheat, available at Tin Whiskers taproom all year long, is our newest pick for Bitter Minnesota Beer of the Week.

Good with? (Food or activities)
Wheatstone Bridge is excellent with spicy foods and grilled and / or barbecued foods.
This is an easy drinking, approachable ale (I call it a 'gateway' craft beer) and is great out on the patio. Very refreshing and light and slightly sweet so it goes down very smooth.
