Take the Hefeweizen, Leave the Lemon

Take the Hefeweizen, Leave the Lemon

The San Francisco Chronicle did a great bit on the history of the German hefeweizen, comparing it to American-styles, and why (thank god) it’s blasphemous to put a piece of fruit in your beer! If there’s one thing that irks me more as a beertender it’s serving someone a traditional hefe or wit beer, and someone asking for a lemon slice. There’s a great shout out to Cerveceria de MateVeza, and Sierra Nevada as well. I could really go for a Kellerweis now….
