TORONTO, ON – Bandit Brewery has announced the return of a summer seasonal that has both a name and a style inspired by Germany.
Hasselhef Hefeweizen is a German-style wheat ale named after actor and singer – and superstar in Germany – David Hasselhoff. The story behind the beer is explained by head brewer Ben Morris:
I wanted a Hefeweizen to branch out some more summer styles without having 8 IPAs on tap. As plans for our summer Hefeweizen came to fruition, my memory jogged and remembered the old saying “don’t hassle the Hoff” and I decided to run with Hasselhef. The association is loose, but with the Hefeweizen and Hasselhoff’s German connection I couldn’t help but make the pun!
Hasselhef Hefeweizen is now available for the summer at the Bandit taproom.
