THE HEFE STORY:

When Drake’s set out to make our Hefe, we knew we wanted to do right by this classic Bavarian style wheat beer with its refreshing light citrus from malted wheat and aromas of banana and clove derived from the German yeast strain. We brought in a true Hefeweizen yeast for our Hefe, but kept the fermentation temperatures slightly lower than those used in Bavaria. The result? Our Hefe is more in line with the tastes of West Coast drinkers with its clean, refreshing, and relatively dry finish and a more subtle accent of the traditional flavors of banana and clove.
