About Hans Gruber Hopped Hef by Eighty-Eight Brewing Co.

Christmas just ain't Christmas in 1988 without John saving Nakatomi Plaza. But every hero needs his heel, and this one is for Hans.

A classic German style Hefeweizen brewed heavily with wheat and then pumped up with Hallertau Blanc and Lemondrop hops during the boil and dry hop. It has nice a subtle fruity flavor to balance the bitterness and finishes with a characteristic clove spice. It may be unorthodox, but it’s still Christmas!


’88 was a pretty damn good year. Hair was big, tunes had attitude and a small city was finding its place on the world stage. ’88 Brewing Company makes beers in the same spirit of excitement for what’s next. Always big flavors, sometimes a little weird, best enjoyed together.
