Cucumber Redbud by Independence Brewing Company in Texas, United States

About Cucumber Redbud by Independence Brewing Company

The origins of this beer started in 2015, when we were at the peak of summer heat and brewing Redbud Berliner Weisse. Our brewers had taken to making kegs of cucumber water to keep the crew hydrated and survive the summer heat. It didn't take long to discover that blending the Redbud and cucumber water created an amazing flavor and inspired a new beer.

The basis of the beer is Redbud Berliner Weisse, which has a tart and lemony profile. The cucumber addition is present in the cool and clean aroma of this beer. It cuts some of the lactic tartness of the Berliner Weisse and delivers a lingering cucumber flavor on the finish, creating a truly unique beer.


Armed with their love of beer, an intrepid spirit, the support of their friends and their trusty dog Jasper, Rob and Amy Cartwright founded Independence Brewing Company. What started with a married couple and their dog, has blossomed into a crew of nine and a community of beer drinkers who enjoy drinking fresh, handcrafted beer.
