What's New?

Sweet, tangy and refreshing, this beer was inspired by German cyclists who mixed beer with lemonade to quench their thirst on a hot summer day. Our take on this style starts with a golden Helles lager and adds a unique blend of lemons to capture that fresh-squeezed taste. Its crisp, light body and clean finish make it a refreshing beer all season long.

Aroma: Fresh-squeezed lemon and lemon peel; pale malt notes
ABV: 4.5%
Taste: Bright & fresh with a lemon zest character balanced by a light malt note and moderate sweetness

Golden, hazy and thirst-quenching. This American wheat ale is synonymous with summer. Our blend of orange, lime and lemon peels create a refreshing, fresh citrus aroma. Grains of paradise accent the crisp wheat character with a subtle spice that finishes clean. Iconic as it is refreshing, Summer Ale is just right for any summer day!

Aroma: Bright, fresh, lemon aroma
ABV: 5.3%
Taste: Crisp with a delicate lemon flavor. Slight malt sweetness with a subtle peppery spice
