Hefeweizen, 4.3% ABV
Our gift to Princess Therese, this true-to-style Hefeweizen is made with malted and unmalted wheat with a touch of Magnum and Tettnang hops. The result is light with a subtle tartness and a moderate ester profile of banana and clove, a perfect refreshment to drink in the sunshine.
Origin of the name: Well, Theresa's Meadow is named for two people/places.
We get the name from Theresienwiese ("Theresa's Meadow"), which is the official grounds for Oktoberfest in Munich. This was a location of the wedding between Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen and King Ludwig I in 1810.
But the name is also an ode to another Princess of Bavaria: Therese Charlotte Marianne Auguste (1850-1925) - an ethnologist, zoologist, botanist, travel writer and leader in social care. She was the first person from the Bavarian royal family to visit the United States, even met President Grant. Therese was very well educated in science and nature, moreover, she was a pioneering figure in women's education, advocate for women's right to education, and she helped established several schools for girls in Bavaria. She focused a lot of her time on social work too! She served as President of the Bavarian Red Cross and even founding the Bavarian Women's Association for Social Work to improve the lives of women and children in Bavaria. Therese was an avid explorer and travelled to Africa, Asia, and South America, even writing a couple books on her adventures.
Therese of Bavaria was a remarkable person we are proud to dedicate our traditional Hefeweizen beer to her.
