Long toasty days, cool breezy nights and a splash of magic provide the inspiration for the Tröegs brothers’ dreamiest creation—Dreamweaver Wheat. Combining wheat with Munich and Pilsner malts, German Northern Brewer hops, open-top fermentation and a yeast strain that imparts hints of pepper, clove and banana, Dreamweaver Wheat is an unfiltered blast of spicy, mouthwatering joy.
Spicy, peppery, clove taste with a slight hint of bananas. When serving DreamWeaver pour 3/4 of the beer into a wheat glass, rouse the yeast at the bottom of the bottle and pour the remainder into the glass for big frothy head.
Why open-top fermenters?
This fermentation room is specifically designed for the yeast we use in the DreamWeaver Wheat. While tanks that look like huge, frothy glasses of fresh beer are cool to look at, they also serve a purpose. As beer ferments, the freshest yeast rises to the top of the tank, creating a huge, frothy head that spills over into the collection tanks. This is known as high krausen. By skimming that yeast off, we can re-use it for the next batch of DreamWeaver. Utilizing the newest, freshest yeast produces hoppier, and stronger "pepper" and "clove" characteristics that are a hallmark of DreamWeaver.

The DreamWeaver pairs well with lighter foods; salads, seafood, sushi and vegetable dishes. Try it with goat cheese or an herb spread such as Boursin.
