German Pilsner, US Rye, and UK Crystal Rye malts create a beautiful orange-red beer with a crisp spiciness from rye malt complemented by pine, citrus, and fresh ginger from US Chinook hops. Refreshing, quenching but full-flavored with a biscuity malt flavor underpinning the hops’ flavor and aroma.

Roggenbier is a German term describing a beer that is made with rye malt. They are usually made with wheat malt as well and they are always ales. Some have characteristics of hefeweizens. Ours is similar in this regard, thus the name “Roggen Weizen”. This beer is made with malted rye, wheat, and barley. It is fermented with a Bavarian wheat yeast so it has the same yeast profile as a German hefeweizen. It is unfiltered and cloudy in appearance.
THE ABITA SELECTION
Our roggen weizen is versatile and can be paired with almost anything. It is very good with most salads and also cheese plates. It is also a perfect match for traditional New Orleans-style brunches. This beer can accompany veal and most seafood dishes.
