The classic Bavarian unfiltered wheat beer - golden, fruity, and thirst-quenching.
The History of Brau-Weisse
Wheat beer has always been known as an elixir or tonic, especially if the brewer's yeast was left in the bottled beer. A very popular beer style, in Germany and around the world.
Pale color, tart in palate, "brut" beer with a delicious, inviting wheat body and elegant aroma. Finishes with a subtle spicy note.
Weiss-wurst (veal sausage), pretzels, Dusseldorf mustard, mettwurst, vegetable pâté, crab Louis, sand dabs, fried smelts, Sunday brunch. Serve in tall vase-shaped weisse glass; a thin slice of lemon as garnish is a personal choice. Glass should accommodate 17-ounces.
