Weihenstephaner Braupakt & Sierra Nevada Hefeweissbier
Weihenstephan, the World’s Oldest Brewery, has embarked on a dream-team partnership with Sierra Nevada, one of America’s pioneering craft brewers, to create “Braupakt,” the eagerly-anticipated Hefeweissbier. Weihenstephaner Braupakt will be available nationwide in April 2018.
“This is the first time Sierra Nevada chose to partner with a long-established brewery,” noted Tobias Zollo, brewmaster at Weihenstephan. “Both breweries had something to glean and gain from the other. We came in with high standards for the Hefeweissbier style. Sierra Nevada, who is world-renowned for the Pale Ale style, came in with the discerning palettes for fruity and aromatic-bodied beers. With Braupakt, we were able to exceed the expectations of both breweries.”
