    Give It A Shot - Two Roads Brewing Hefeweizen

    Two Roads Brewing No Limits Hefeweizen arrived at our tasting table today by way more than two roads.  It was brought here from the east coast thanks to our good friend of the show Charlie who has been supplying us with many of our beverages as of late.  This brewery out of Stratford Connecticut has as they say taken the "bahn" less traveled to create a classic Bavarian wheat brew.  Will this 5% ABV beer truly be as "limitless" as Bradley Cooper?  Time to taste and find out.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Oak Creek Brewing Hefeweizen

    Normally a Hefeweizen is not the style of beer we gravitate toward this time of year.  Not that it's not a good one, but usually we are more on the lookout for the darker things that find there way to the shelves.  All of that changes when a loyal listener to the show (Gary) hands us an Oak Creek Brewing Hefeweizen and says to "Give It A Shot".  Opening in February of 1995 this microbrewery located in Sedona, Arizona has won its fare share of awards at not only the North American Brewers' Association competition, but also the Great American Beer Fest.  Now its time to head to the tasting table and experience their take on a classic Bavarian wheat beer.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Sierra Nevada Brewing Kellerweis Hefeweizen

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.  Available year round, the Sierra Nevada Kellerweis is a hefeweizen in the most classic of ways.  It's one of the only American Hefeweizens to use open style fermentation, a very labor-intensive process.  Like the Rogue Hefeweizen earlier in the week, it also falls into the sessionable category at 4.8%.  Not to continue with the comparisons, but I will, they both share a hop in common, Sterling.  Time to stop talking and start tasting!

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Rogue Brewing Mom Hefeweizen

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.  Rogue Brewing kicks of our week long salute to the hefeweizen with a beer simply called Mom Hefeweizen.  It's very similar to a beer that can be found year round called Haf-E-Weizen, but that particular version does not appear to incorporate the infusion of rose petals and rose water.  Like most beers in this style, it's very sessionable at only 4.8% ABV.  The real question is, will we want to have more than one?  Time to find out.
