Weihenstephan Hefe Weissbier

Hofbrauhaus Hefeweizen has been a staple on our draft tower for years. The Hofbrauhaus brewery is a legend in its own right.  As one of the six original Oktoberfest brewers from Munchen, Germany, we were proud to offer it on our draft list. Since we have ten draft taps to fill, Hofbrauhaus has always seemed to be one that gets great reviews. (You will get to enjoy their Oktoberfest in just a few weeks.)

Unfortunately, I was told by my distributor that they did not get their shipment yet from Hofbrauhaus, and it would be another week. So we must move on by filling that hole, and when it comes to rounding out our draft beer selection, we feel a Hefeweizen style of beer should be included.

This week, we are introducing Weihenstephan Hefe Weissbier to our collection of draft beers. This original Bavarian style beer is produced at the oldest continuously operating brewery in the world, the Weihenstephan Monastery Brewery near Munich, Germany. Although they claim monks were producing hops on site since the early 700's, the official opening of the brewery is listed as 1040.

They have been producing excellent craft beers, and their Weissbier is their staple brew. In fact, this beer receives 98 points in beer advocate and 99 points in Ratebeer. This is a full bodied golden wheat beer with hints of clove and according to the brewmaster, a unique banana flavor. Sounds interesting for a beer right?

Come taste a beer brewed according to centuries-old traditions on the famous Weihenstephan hill.
