Their great big thirst quenching adventure goes a little bit like this...
In 1984, we begin as Hart Brewing, Inc., founded by Beth Hartwell who launches our flagship brand of Pyramid ales. Our inaugural Pyramid beer, Pale Ale, is one of the first American microbrews. Then in '85 we created America's first year-round wheat beer since Prohibition and name it Wheaten Ale. And there was refreshment, and it was good. Hefeweizen is born in '93. Unfiltered and brewed with over 60% malted wheat, this full-bodied beer outdoes the 50% Bavarian tradition, and remains our biggest star. 1996 brought us rebirth as Pyramid Breweries, Inc.
