Summer seasonal beers are in full swing along with the heat. My favorite beer to drink in the hot weather of June, July, and August is a refreshing hefeweizen. It has something to do with the carbonation and flavors of banana and clove that makes it so delicious. In this article I'm going to share with you Fluke Brewing's new Hefeweizen recipe and how we formulated it. Water, malt, hops, and yeast and the four basic ingredients in every beer so lets examine each of them in order to make a great summer hefeweizen.

After 3 months in the Tuthilltown Spirits bourbon barrel, it was time to bottle up our 11% ABV russian imperial stout that we call Wendigo. What is a Wendigo you ask? Besides our kickass beer. A Wendigo is a mythological demonic half-beast creature appearing in the legends of the Algonquian people. The Wendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave. Modern science believes Wendigos are extinct and killed off by the modern day zombie apocalypse boom. Little do they know the beast lives on!

Conan is a BEAST!!! I'm not talking about either of these guys either.
I'm talking about the proprietary yeast strain from The Alchemist Brewery in Waterbury, VT.

This past Saturday, Fluke Brew crew mixed up a batch of their Black Rye IPA. The midnight wheat and debittered black malt filled the air with aromas of chocolate and roasted coffee while crushing our grains.
