Brewer’s Alley Baker’s Brew


Brewed by Brewer’s Alley Restaurant & Brewery
Frederick, Maryland USA
Style: German Hefeweizen | Ratings: 5 | Autumn Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.9%
This Beer was inspired by the flavor of Banana Nut Bread, a Wonderfully aromatic baked good. The malts we used were a combination of four different types, which lends a variety of roasted and nutty flavors. The malt flavor in this beer is a dominant part of its overall character. We employed a special strain of weizen yeast for fermentation in order to develop a faint banana and clove character. For additional spiciness, we added vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove to the brew kettle. This helps to amplify the clove flavor which the yeast naturally produces. Additionally, as a compliment to the spices, we dry-hopped this Beer with Cascade hops. The combination of the hops and other spices creates a flavor characterized by subtle complexity, especially in the aroma.
