Notes: Citizens of Munich were invited to attend festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the wedding of King Ludwig I and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. This became the very first Oktoberfest. The fields were named Theresienwiese ("Theresa's Meadow") in honor of the Crown Princess, which is still used to this day and nicknamed Wiesn. In 1516 under the German Purity Law Reinheitsgebot, brewing wheat beers was forbidden. However, due to the popularity of weissbier among royalty, it was the first style to receive an exemption.

This Bavarian wheat beer is a crisp, refreshing brew with a low to moderate alcohol content. The suspended yeast gives this hefeweizen its most notable characteristic; the cloudy appearance. Traditional German Hefeweizens are also distinct in their use of a unique yeast strain which produces a beer with notable amounts of clove, banana, and occasionally bubblegum esters. We worked hard to produce a hefe that leans heavier towards the stronger clove and milder banana, with reduced amounts of bubblegum. This is possible due to a long cooking regime and closely monitored fermentation temperatures.
