Review: Sierra Nevada Kellerweis0

by Mikeat 08:02 PM

Sierra Nevada is one of those breweries that you can always count on to produce a good product. Their Kellerweis is one of my favorites and is pretty easy to find year round.

Flensburger Brauerei based out of Germany is one of the last country-wide operating breweries not owned by one of the larger macrobreweries.   Founded in 1888,  it is still family run by the founder’s families Petersen and Dethleffsen today. Generously given to me by Carl (thanks!) is their Weizen in a swing top 355 ml bottle.

My tour of the beers from Penobscot Bay Brewery in Winterport Maine continues with the Meadow Road Wheat Beer. The brewery bills this beer as being a true Hefeweizen, so I’m expecting a some nice banana and citrus flavors with a good bready yeast and wheat backbone.
