Ranger Creek Releases First Seasonal Offering, Hefe

Ranger Creek BrewingSAN ANTONIO, TX – Ranger Creek’s first true seasonal offering has finally been released and is now available at good craft beer bars in San Antonio, Austin, and Houston.

Ranger Creek Hefe, a Bavarian-style Hefeweizen, holds a special place in the history of Ranger Creek. It comes from a homebrew recipe for which the guys won two homebrew medals at Houston’s Dixie Cup Homebrew Competition back before they started brewing commercially. These medals were one of the things that got them cocky enough to decide they could start a microbrewery.

The refreshing wheat beer is brewed in the traditional German style to honor San Antonio’s German roots. The use of German Pilsner and wheat malts give it a subtle, cereal-like malt sweetness. This provides the back drop for hints of clove that were pulled from the wheat using a step mash and banana esthers, along with some delicate spice notes from the yeast. The appearance is cloudy and dark gold. This effervescent, refreshing beer is great for triple digit Texas summers and pairs well with sushi, salads, goat cheese, and light desserts like strawberry shortcake. It will be available on draft only in limited quantities over the next two months.
