I’ll always have a soft spot for Ellensburg. It’s where I went to school and spent some of the best years of my life, and the atmosphere is such a perfect example of Eastern Washington. The college is smack-dab in the middle, taking up a large portion of the city, but step outside of it to a quaint downtown area with lots of farmland, rodeos, and an easy-going vibe.
It’s only fitting that a beer coming out of Ellensburg is something I’d drink to cool down during a long, hot day, so I’m really looking forward to digging into Iron Horse’s hefeweizen, High Five Hef.
Their description of this beer is “Wheat, honey and ginger. A hefe with flavor before the fruit. No lemon required. In fact, please spare our beer from the embarrassment.” Sounds like my kind of beer, so let’s dig into it!
