HEFEWEIZEN(hay-fa-VEIT-sen)

refreshing flavor.

A dry, auburn-colored, Bavarian lager with a mildly sweet finish. It was originally brewed in
March (“März” in German) and stored in caves to be drunk during warmer weather.

finish.
Original gravity: 11.2° Plato Alcohol by volume: 4.30%

GOLDEN EXPORT
A smooth, refreshing lager, lightly hopped with a dry finish. The demand was so high
when it was first brewed in the 1870s, that it was “exported” to other regions in Germany
