In seemingly fitting news, considering the early arrival of warmer temperatures this year, Community Beer Co.has announced it will release a new summer seasonal named Texas Helles.

Brewed using all German malt and hops, Texas Helles comes in at 5 percent ABV and is fermented with a traditional Bavarian yeast strain and lagered for six weeks in order to produce a crisp, clean and easy-drinking flavor profile that should make it an ideal match for hot Texas summers.

“We feel Texas Helles is the perfect summer beer,” said brewmaster Jamie Fulton. “It is great for cookouts, tailgating, the swimming pool or escaping the heat in the cool comforts of home. We brewed it with an incredible balance of European malt and hops, resulting in a clean and delightfully refreshing brew.”

According to a press release, Texas Helles will be available on draft and in six-pack cans during the months of June, July and August across the brewery’s distribution footprint. A kick-off party to celebrate the beer’s launch will be held at Community’s location in the Dallas Design District on May 20.
