Town Hall Crystal Weiss


Brewed by Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery
Minneapolis, Minnesota USA
Style: German Kristallweizen | Ratings: 7 | Alcohol: 6%
This Americanized “kristalweiss” beer was made with 45% wheat malt (hence, the name) with the rest filled out by German Vienna malt – much like the malt of our Hefe recipe. This is where any similarity ends, however. We hopped it as we would any single-hop pale ale – with a lot of American Crystal hops (again, the name). It was fermented with our house ale yeast – NOT a Germen Hefeweizen strain. You won’t get any spicy clove, bubblegum yeast character from this beer. Lastly, we filtered the beer to strip out the yeast and as much wheat haze as possible (which one wouldn’t do to any Hefeweizen) in the tradition of a “Kristal weiss” beer. The result is a refreshing, crisp hoppy wheat ale perfect for a warm, sunny day, or whatever kind of day June will give us.
