Astro Biz: Elliott Bay Brewery Luna Weizen

Luna WeizenMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

This week’s Astro Biz is Luna Weizen from Elliott Bay Brewing Company in West Seattle. Luna Weizen is brewed with 40 percent wheat malt, which imparts a distinct citrus flavor and aroma. The brewery says its version is more accurately a “wheaten ale,” a beer in which wheat is used to lend a distinct flavor, but at a much lower percentage of the total grain.

We had a couple on the way home from a recent astronomy event; there’s often time for a brew while waiting for the next bus!

Elliott Bay also has pubs in Burien and Lake City.
