Brues Alehouse Brewing Co
Our Impression: If you can’t tell, we have a fascination with German-style beers here at Brues Alehouse. German wheat beers are found year-round throughout Bavaria, and they are easily some of the most refreshing and nourishing beers they brew. We’ve attempted many German Wheats, and we’ve learned that they are about as difficult to correctly brew as their lagers. After our last trip to Munich in 2019, we realized that we were off mark with our process and recipes. Fast forward to 2021, and we have a few new tricks up our sleeve. We are proud to say our brew days are longer than ever, and our process is scientific to the minute detail. We feel BruWeisse is an excellent representation of the style and enjoyable to the last sip!

Appearance: BruWeisse pours golden-orange with moderate cloudiness due to the non-flocculating yeast and the higher protein content from the wheat. A thick white lasting foam emerges with medium carbonation.
Flavor: Our hefeweizen takes on the true character of a Bavarian Weissbier, or Hefeweizen. This beer is very smooth, non-bitter, and features the classic notes of banana and clove. Moderate malt character balances this beer and gives a touch of sweetness.
