This is my second beer from Throwback and based on the first two I will have to start making regular trips to Hampton, New Hampshire. The Rhubarb Wit was excellent and I really enjoyed this hefeweizen. Hoping I can grab some Spicy Bohemian next time it is available.
A truly great looking beer with a thick head and light orange color. Plenty of spice and banana in the aroma which draws you into the beer. Taste has plenty of banana, some orange and spice as well and is extremely well done. The beer finished clean and very refreshing. One of the best hefeweizens I have sampled.

Brewers Description: Hog Happy Hefeweizen is a full-flavored, traditional German-style wheat beer that tastes like it comes straight from Munich, but is made with wheat from local farms. The yeast used during fermentation gives this straw-colored beer the sweet flavor and aromas of banana & clove.
You might wonder what’s behind the ‘Hog Happy’ name. Well, it is pretty simple. The grain used in our brewing process gets passed on to local farmers and their livestock (including the pigs). Although there is no alcohol in the spent grain, the little piggies can’t seem to get enough – the grain just makes them very happy!
We encourage you to do your part in enhancing the happiness of the pigs on the seacoast of NH. Drink a beer – feed a pig!
