Classic Wheat Beer
touch of lemon
Typical of hefeweizens, this beer is hazy and typical of optimism, we view the overcast as partly sunny.
Story Behind the Name
Seattle weather rewards the optimist. In a city famous for skies as cloudy as a good wheat beer, the ability to see the sun among the clouds is essential to a happy, healthy life.
Year round beer, to add sunshine to fall/winter grayness
Why We Don't Call It That
We believe in simplicity and clarity when it comes to our beer names. "Hefeweizen" is as tricky to pronounce as it is to spell, and, unless you speak German, it doesn't really get the point across either.
