Wheat or white beers?

In German, “Weisse” means “white,” and “Weizen” means “wheat.” This linguistic connection might lead to believe that all wheat beers are “white” due to their shared Germanic roots.

However, some wheat beer styles can surprise you with their rich, dark shades, like the German Dunkel Weissbier, also known as Dunkelweizen. Wheat beers come in a vast array of colors, and our new strains are the perfect choice to answer those needs!
