Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Wheelhouse Fish Co. unique?
Shalie was raised working on her family's commercial fishing boats, the F/V Whidby and the F/V Rebel Isle, harvesting wild salmon, halibut, and shrimp on the coastal waters of Southeast Alaska.

Wheelhouse Fish Co. is inspired by her upbringing and the unique lifestyle of Alaskan fishermen and families.

Why is this fish better than what I can find at my typical fish market?
Wild seafood is harvested in a manner that promotes the long-term health and stability of ocean ecosystems. Responsible fishing practices focus on maintaining fish populations, minimizing bycatch, and preserving marine habitats, helping to safeguard the delicate balance of marine life.

Many coastal communities throughout Alaska have relied on wild seafood as a significant part of their cultural and traditional heritage for generations. By choosing wild seafood, you support these communities and their way of life.

Isn't fresh fish better than frozen?
At the end of the day, “fresh” fish at the grocery store may not always be as fresh as you think. The reality is, unless you live on the coast or near a fishing port, you’re likely not eating truly fresh fish (meaning fish that has never been frozen).  Wheelhouse Fish Co. products are flash frozen, which preserves its flavor and texture. All of this is locked in until the moment you’re ready to thaw and prepare it!

How should I defrost my catch?
Thaw frozen seafood in the fridge overnight or in a plastic bag under cool running water – never in warm water or at room temperature.

Sierra Nevada Hoptimum Triple IPA

2024 Edition
Sierra Nevada Hoptimum Triple IPA....$14.99 / 6pk
Fancy seeing me here! After all, the place can hardly hold 11% — I’m scraping the rafters. Makes for a good view, and it’s clear when a room needs what I’ve got in spades: fruity, dank, and devilishly hoppy flavor. Your night is looking up. Savor it and don’t blink because I like to vanish in a puff of lupulin dust.

Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager

Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager...$9.99 / 6pk 12oz cans
Sierra Nevada Summerfest Lager...$18.99 / 12pk 12oz cans
It’s time to soak up the sun, and this refreshing lager is the real SPF đź’Ż: Summer Pilsner Flavor.
Summerfest is golden bright, balancing delicate yet complex malt alongside spicy, floral hops. Hints of lemon zest lead into a dry finish, and the sessionable 5% ABV invites another round on those endless summer days.

In the nose, the 2023 vintage offers bright & fresh aromas of orange blossom, orange sorbet, and red grapefruit. This wine is tightly wound, and expresses flint & mineral aromas that couple with rich texture in the palate from time spent on lees.

Made with Organic Grapes
A beautiful pale pink color with clear blue highlights. This expressive cuvée opens immediately with notes of red berries supported by delicate citrus fruit. A touch of refreshing greenness accompanies the palate, giving this lively, fresh wine a truly thirst-quenching character. An easy-drinking wine, very much in the style of Mediterranean rosés: finesse, white fruit flavors and a touch of elegant minerality.

2023 Peyrassol Les Commandeurs Rose....$24.99
Varietal Composition: 40% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 10% Rolle

Pale pink and delicate. Notes of small wild berries mingle on the nose with a hint of juniper. This spicy touch supports a palate built on liveliness reminiscent of exotic citrus fruit. The whole is harmonious, clean and refreshing.

2022 La Rousse Sauvignon Blanc

2022 La Rousse Sauvignon Blanc....$13.99
Great Value in French Sauvignon Blanc.
We tasted it again yesterday and it is fantastic!  Make sure you try a bottle!
Indigenous to South West France, the name Sauvignon Blanc comes from the words sauvage (wild) and blanc (white). Now that this grape variety has been domesticated, it produces crisp, zesty wines full of citrus, and tropical fruit flavors. The image on the label was painted by the Ohio artist Kate Morgan.
A stunning 100% Sauvignon Blanc from rocky limestone vineyards in the Gard region of the Languedoc. This is an amazing value in Sauvignon Blanc that is light yellow in appearance with a complex nose that features notes of lemon, lime, flowers and fresh green apples.

LALO Tequila

LALO Blanco Tequila...$44.99 / 750ml
To say that tequila-making runs in the family is an understatement. LALO is named in honor of Eduardo "Lalo" González, the son of Don Julio González and the father of our co-founder and maestro tequilero, who is also named Lalo. Lalo continues as the third generation of his tequilero family with a bold new approach to perfecting blanco tequila.
After nearly a decade in the tequila industry, David Carballido, Lalo's childhood friend, approached Lalo to create a truly pure blanco tequila. Together, they wanted to showcase a traditionally made tequila with a distinctly modern, Mexican aesthetic. What began as a small, private batch in Guadalajara is now a premium tequila that is beloved for its crisp, pure taste.
Each bottle of LALO is 100% pure. We distill only twice to maintain the integrity of our agave, and add no flavors or additives. With LALO, our ingredients are only agave, yeast and water to honor the complex essence of agave.
