OMG, Our Fair State collaboration helles is here!

May 17, 2016 – 0 Comments

After months and months in the making, we've paired up with Fair State Brewing Cooperative to release our collaboration beer, Das Homeguys Helles.

Das Homeguys Helles is a classic Münich-Style Helles lager. A staple of summer in Bavaria, helles (which means "light" in German) is a malt-centric pale lager with low hop bitterness and aroma, and lower ABV. When Bauhaus and Fair State – both lager loving breweries – teamed up to brew our first collaboration beer with each other, we set out to make a straight-up, no-frills example of this Bavarian classic. Coming in at 4.6% ABV, this deliciously refreshing pale lager showcases the graham crackery maltiness of floor-malted Eastern European pilsner malt. With just a touch of traditional noble hops for balance, and a crisp, dry finish, there is some awesome complexity to this easy drinking brew. Available exclusively on draft, Homeguys Helles is what all the Hausboys will be drinking this spring!

Both of the Fair State and Bauhaus versions of Das Homeguys are on tap at their respective taprooms starting now.

This beer is so light, refreshing and drinkable, you'll be at the bottom of your glass before you know it, so get it while it lasts!
