SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Whether looking for the perfect beer on a warm summer afternoon or a versatile drink to complement a variety of dishes, Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier fits the bill.

“It’s really refreshing on a hot day,” said Joe Hotek, an employee at John’s Grocery, 401 E. Market St. “And it pretty much pairs well with anything from a burger to a salad.”

The light wheat beer is distinct for its hazy golden-yellow hue and floral, fruity aroma, and it contains tones of banana, citrus, and clove in its flavor.

The beer is also noteworthy for its historical ties — Weihenstephaner, based in Bavaria, Germany, is the world’s oldest brewery; it has concocted drinks for nearly a millennium.
