A fresh take on an old favorite

Remember your old pal Summit Hefeweizen? It’s back with a few slight tweaks. Get reacquainted with its effervescent foam and dry, refreshing finish. Party like old times with the toasted breadcrumb base, and say “guten Tag” to a little Tettnang hop spice. Finally, sink into familiar aromas of banana and clove, provided by a tremendous German yeast strain. Yes, yeast can be tremendous. Find it on draft and in 12-oz. cans, only inside the Boundary Waters Box.

Conversation Starter

Many Minnesotans have fond memories of Summit Hefeweizen, one of the brewery’s first seasonal beers. Originally developed by the brewers of Bavaria, Germany, to quench the thirst of beer lovers during hot continental European summers, 2017 will see the return of this slightly tweaked classical style to our portfolio.


Serving Tips

Serve at 38–42 degrees F in a Hefeweizen glass.
