Halcyon (hal-see-on) is an unapologetic American-style wheat beer with a taste like the finest days of summer. Our brewery is situated on the buckle of the “wheat-belt”, so this beer means something special to us. Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat is the result of our Midwestern angst, an all-American wheat with real Kansas-grown grain in the brew.
We start with raw Kansas white wheat in the mix to give it a nice edge,but what really makes it shine is the hops. We use "hop-bursting" of Citra Hops late in the brewing process and this gives Halcyon a palate of tropical fruit flavors & aromas with a bright and refreshing taste like the best days of summer.
