Wellman's Craft Beer Profiles! Best Craft Beer in West Des Moines: Exile Hannah


Because we love craft beer around here (duh!), we're going to do the next best thing to drinking beer... We're going to talk about it. So every once in a while, we'll feature a craft beer that you can get here at Wellman's Pub & Rooftop in West Des Moines. For the moment, we're going to tackle our Iowa brewed beers that we feature here, starting with one of our favorites: Exile Brewing Company from Des Moines.

We love Exile for many reasons. Yes their beer is outstanding, but first and foremost, we love that it's a family owned place, owned by the Tursi family of Latin King Fame. They took some of the best knowledge of beer and the food that they've crafted for decades and took the risk to brew something beautiful. In fact, they've created lots of beautiful things. 

One of our favorites is their Bavarian Wheat that they call "Hannah." Here are the tasting notes from their website: 

Intense aromas of clove and banana give way to a mouthwatering citrus flavor in this unique brew. German wheat and malt come together in a meticulous decoction mash to make a distinct and refreshing beer. A lifelong friend of Exile, Hannah is outspoken and independent, and the perfect embodiment of our Bavarian Wheat.

We're proud to carry Hannah on tap here at Wellman's Pub & Rooftop! If you want to try it, stop in anytime. Mention this blog post and we'll take $1 off your first Exile Hannah pint!
