Matt Hodgson's Picks

“Ramping up for Summer!”

What am I stocking up on this summer? Well thanks to Lucas, we’ve got a plethora of new German beers to choose from. While there’s no wrong choice between the 4, so far I’ve found myself reaching for the wheat beer the most.

Pouring with gorgeous haze and a thick frothy head. Der Weizen drinks with the perfect balance of banana and cloves. Adding to the easy drinking nature of it, Tillman’s dry-hops their beer with American hops, giving you that nice little citrus freshness.

I love a good wheat beer, they always seem to find a way into my staff picks. So naturally I think Der Weizen is not just the wheat beer of the summer, but it might just be the beer of the summer.
