- From The Brewery -
Dancing Trout Ale is a German Wheat Ale, the filtered version of a true Bavarian Hefeweizen. In Bavaria this beer would be called a Kristall-Weizen (Crystal-Wheat) because of its clarity. Dancing Trout Ale is brewed with malted wheat, pale, carmel malt, and hopped with Cascade hops from Yakima, Washinton. Unlike its British and American counterparts, Dancing Trout Ale is brewed in the Bavarian tradition. You are enjoying a beer that has been aged a minimum of 28 days, versus 7-10 days for the average ale. Dancing Trout Ale is not too strong in alcohol (5.4% by volume) moderately hopped and light in color. Unlike many ales, Dancing Trout Ale is mild with no bitter aftertaste! We dedicate this latest addition to our Bayern familiy of quality German beers to helping preserve Montana"s trout habitat, one beer at a time.
To welcome Dancing Trout Ale to the Bayern Brewing line of fine beers, an explanation is in order. It’s very likely that you already know this beer by one or two different names. It began in 1987, when it was known as Bayern Brewing’s Light Wheat Ale – the filtered version of our original Hefeweizen.
