Hyannis, MA – Almost a month earlier than last year, Cape Cod Beer has handcrafted a traditional German Hefe-Weizen, called “Cape Cod Summer”, and will begin selling it on tap and at the brewery starting April 20th. This traditional German wheat beer is popular in Bavaria during the spring and summer months. Pronounced Hay-fa-VI-tsen, this beer style is unfiltered and known for its unique banana and clove flavors, which come from the special German yeasts used in fermentation. It is light and wonderfully refreshing during the hot days of summer – and has become a key indicator that “summer is coming” to fans of the brand.
Traditionally Cape Cod Beer has made a limited amount of “Summer” and only sold it at the brewery – but this year they plan to brew it all summer long, and offer it on draught at local establishments already serving their other brands. Restaurants serving “Summer” starting April 20 include:
· Barnstable Restaurant & Tavern
· Island Merchant
· Oyster Company
· Red Nun
· Roo Bar Chatham
· Trowbridge Tavern
· Wianno Grille
· With more to come…..
Cape Cod Summer will also be at the brewery in 64 oz refillable growlers: $13 for a new growler and $7 for a refill. Brewery hours are Monday thru Friday Noon to 6pm, as well as Saturday 11am to 2pm.
