The origins of this beer started in 2015, when we were at the peak of summer heat and brewing Redbud Berliner Weisse. Our brewers had taken to making kegs of cucumber water to keep the crew hydrated and survive the summer heat. It didn't take long to discover that blending the Redbud and cucumber water created an amazing flavor and inspired a new beer.
The basis of the beer is Redbud Berliner Weisse, which has a tart and lemony profile. The cucumber addition is present in the cool and clean aroma of this beer. It cuts some of the lactic tartness of the Berliner Weisse and delivers a lingering cucumber flavor on the finish, creating a truly unique beer.
