Our only wheat beer, clear with a light hop bitterness.
The gentle texture of the wheat subdues the hops and imparts a suggestion of cloves.

Copperwheat is named after the fictitious Lewes brewers in Mrs. Dudeney’s novel ‘Seed Pods’ (1927).
Brewed with malted wheat and barley, this ‘Kristal Weissbier’ contains only English aroma hops.
Beers made with wheat can be incredibly versatile when it comes to pairing alongside food and Copperwheat, a ‘Kristal Weissbier’ – or clear wheat beer - is no exception. Copperwheat drinks comfortably alongside the smoke and spice of big flavours like coriander, chilli, cumin and lime, and cuts through the heaviness of the black beans with ease, refreshing the palate and leaving you ready for another tasty mouthful.
Or if you want to try it with something less spicy, how about pairing it with a big bowl of pesto pasta or baked bananas in a rum and orange sauce.
