Brewer Notes:

Pug's wheat is an American wheat ale, medium bodied with notes of citrus and low hop bitterness. Rounds out with a clean crisp finish. Served with a lemon, this wheat is a local’s favorite. This lightly filtered unique recipe produces an easy to drink light Colorado brew.

Pairs well with:

  • Caesar Salad
  • Fish Sandwich
  • Rocky Mountain Trout Almondine

The subtle flavor and citric notes complement fish, seafood and salads.

History:

An Americanized version of a Hefe Weizen, these beers range within the pale to golden range in color. Long-lasting head with a light to medium body, higher carbonation is proper. Most use a substantial percentage of wheat malt. Hop character will be low to high but most are moderate in bitterness. There may be some fruitiness from ale fermentation though most examples use of a fairly neutral ale yeast, resulting in a clean fermentation with little to no dactyl.
