Haystack Hefeweizen

Haystack earned a Silver Medal in Best of Craft’s 2016 competition!

A classic Northwest, cloudy, wheat beer crafted from 60 percent malted wheat and Two-Row Pale and Vienna barley malts, German Spalt hops and our northwest ale yeast. Haystack Hefeweizen has a spicy-citrusy aroma that carries over to a clean, mellow flavor with spice, citrus, and yeast overtones.

1.052 O.G. / 5.3% ABV / 18 IBU

Haystack is available in 50 liter (13.2 gallon) and 7.75 gallon kegs, but if you buy or bring in a growler, cornie or any other container, we’ll be happy to fill it for you!

Haystack Hefeweizen is great all by itself, especially with a lemon wedge in the rim of the glass. Food pairings include lighter meats such as prosciutto, grilled chicken and pork loin. It is also excellent paired with desserts such as apple tarts and banana bread. 

Where does Haystack get it’s name? Well, just east of Snoqualmie is Mt. Si, and you can climb to the top, but is isn’t an easy hike: In about 4 miles there is a 3,100 foot elevation gain! Once you get to the top, and you think you’ve summited, there is a little icing on the cake: The Haystack is the true summit of Mt. Si, and it calls to you, beckons you, taunts you! Do you have the energy for that final push? Either way, you know once you have rubber kneed it back to the car you’ll need to drive to the Taproom for a glass of Haystack.
