Derived from the origins of classic Hefeweisse Bier with a uniquely northwest twist. We started with a classic Hefe recipe with a healthy dosage malted and un-malted wheat. We incorporated a traditional German Weisse Bier yeast that provides the traditional esters of banana and clove. We then put a twist on an old classic and hit it with a healthy dosage of a new-age NW Hop variety called Lemondrop and lemon peel. We then dry-hopped it twice with Lemondrop. As the name suggests the hopping added a bright citrus flavor to the beer reminiscent of squeezing a lemon into your beer as so many people do at the bar. Low alcohol, pleasant aroma and bright taste make for a perfect August and September drinker.

When we first brewed Hefe in 1986, we knew we had stumbled upon something special. Hefe's signature cloudy look, bold flavors and citrus notes defined a new style-- the American-style Hefeweizen. At the time, we didn't realize we had created the original American Hefeweizen and never expected that it would still be Oregon's favorite craft beer some three decades later.
