Pyramid Breweries has expanded the distribution of its Crystal Wheat Ale to reach grocery store and retail outlets in the Pacific north-west of the US.

The company said today (9 April) that the filtered wheat beer, which was previously only available at Pyramid's Alehouses, will roll out across the region immediately.

Pyramid Breweries master brewer George Arnold said: "Pyramid Crystal Wheat has been a well-kept secret for too long. We're now making it more widely available to its fans throughout the Pacific north-west. Crystal is light-bodied and refreshing, but still full of flavour."

Crystal Wheat Ale is 5.3% abv and is "made with Mt. Hood, US Tettnang, and US Spalt wheat hops and 2 Row Pale Barley", the company added
