Standing Stone Brewing Company of Ashland, OR recently released its summer seasonal Hefeweizen and a specialty ale, “Midsummer Dream.”

 

Hefeweizen

 

Standing’s Stone’s Hefeweizen is a top fermented Bavarian-style wheat beer, true to tradition. It’s unfiltered, resulting in a hazy gold color matching summer’s late afternoon rays. This craft beer offers aromas and flavors of clove and banana. It’s highly carbonated for a refreshing mouthfeel Standing’s Stone’s 2010 Hefeweizen garnered a gold award in the Lallemand Brain of Brewers contest in 2010. Brewmaster Larry Chase promises this year’s batch is just as good or even better. 6.0% abv

 

Malt: Organic Wheat, Organic Pilsne,  Acidulated

 

Hops: Organic Magnum for bittering, Organic Saaz for flavor/aroma 

 

Midsummer Dream

 

Midsummer Dream is named in honor of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon, This ale offers a bright yellow color matching summer’s rays and a very light body. It’s a session-style craft beer with a lower alcohol content, making it the perfect choice to sip on the season’s long afternoons. It’s no lightweight when it comes to flavor, imparting a distinct cracker-like malt character with spicy and floral nuances from the blend of Cascade and Centennial hops. Due to fermentation at a lower temperature (62F) than our other ales, this beer has a crisp, dry finish much like a pilsner. 4.9% abv

 

Malt: Organic Pilsner, Organic Crystal 15, Organic Carapils, Ashburne Mild, Acidualted

 

Hops: Bittering = Centennial, Flavor/Aroma = Centennial and Cascade
