HomeBeerHomestead Helles A good lager requires a bit of aging, and back in the day, it was often done in caves. Beneath our floors are two levels of lager caves that run into the hillside - and as they have since 1857. They provide a cool, ideal spot for a great lager - like our Helles - to come into its own. STYLE: HELLES ABV: 5%IBU: 20Inspired by traditional German brewing practices, we employ a decoction mash and slow fermentation to keep this beer as authentic to the German original as possible. Clean, crisp, and light on the tongue at first, this beer finishes delightfully bready and malty. This is a beer that is sure to please any beer drinker.
