Sudwerk’s core beer lineup rings true to its authentic Bavarian roots. The Northern Pilsner, Märzen Amber Lager, and Hefeweizen Bavarian Wheat are each brewed using the same family recipes originally brought to California by Sudwerk’s first German Brewmeister.
The recipes were passed down for generations and make for the most authentic tasting German-style beers on the West Coast. In addition to the authentic Bavarian options, we’ve added a fourth beer to the core lineup that is a step forward into the next generation.
By starting with the first recipe ever brewed at Sudwerk, the Helles Lager, and replacing the German hops with Pacific Northwestern hops, we created the California Dry Hop Lager. This beer represents a modern twist on a classic recipe; it has the fresh piney and citrusy aroma of an IPA mixed with the clean, refreshing finish of a lager.
