Weizen
Weizens (pronounced vy-tzin) are a unique style of beer from the Bavarian state in Germany. The grist contains a large portion of wheat, which leads to a distinctive wheaty aroma and medium to full body. Because it is unfiltered, weizen will display a wonderful haze and cloudiness. The traditional Bavarian yeast strain used to brew the weizen styles offers a pronounced aroma and flavor of banana and clove. We brew the following two varieties of weizen annually:

Dunkelweizen – 5.0% – 5.7% abv (5.3% average), unfiltered, Winter and Fall
Darker malts lend to a darker color and slightly more malty flavor.

Hefeweizen – 4.6% – 5.2% abv (5.0% average), unfiltered, Summer and Spring
Lighter malts lend to a hazy golden color and slightly more ‘refreshing’ taste.

Oatmeal Stout – 6.1% – 7.0% abv (6.7% average), unfiltered
This English stout is a dark brown to black beer that exhibits strong roast and burnt characteristics. The dark malts used give this beer a rich aroma and flavor. It is not heavily hopped and oats are used in the grist to lend a fuller mouthfeel.
