A beer/cider collaboration with our friends at Stem Ciders (Denver, CO). Chais, head brewer of Fullsteam, and Ian, owner at Stem, brewed a hefeweizen, adding Virginia apple juice to the whirlpool before pitching it with Weizen yeast.
Clove and banana esters fuse seamlessly with fresh apple. Mosaic and Citra hops add a layer of tropical, juicy punch.
FUN FACT! Though the blending of malted grain and apples into a fermented beverage has surely been around for centuries, the term "Graf" to describe the beverage comes from Steven King in his book The Dark Tower.
