BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Throwback Brewery
New Hampshire, United States

Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Hog Happy Hefeweizen is a full-flavored, traditional German-style wheat beer that tastes like it comes straight from Munich, but is made with wheat from local farms. The yeast used during fermentation gives this straw-colored beer the sweet flavor and aromas of banana & clove.

You might wonder what’s behind the ‘Hog Happy’ name. Well, it is pretty simple. The grain used in our brewing process gets passed on to local farmers and their livestock (including the pigs). Although there is no alcohol in the spent grain, the little piggies can’t seem to get enough – the grain just makes them very happy!

We encourage you to do your part in enhancing the happiness of the pigs on the seacoast of NH. Drink a beer – feed a pig!

Pours beautiful hazy yellow/gold color with a medium white head.

Smells spicy and yeasty

Tastes wonderful. Bubblegum/banana sweetness and some clove with a hint of tartness.

Crisp and refreshing.

Overall- Really refreshing/drinkable hefewiezen. Highly recommended,
