We don't know why it always seems to be cloudy on Saturdays in the summer, but we've got the beer that will make the day brighter. This Saturday we are tasting 3 Dunkelweizens - dark hefeweizens - and hope that you will attend. The tasting goes all day, from noon until 6 pm, so put the college game on 'pause' and get down to the store! Here's more information from each brewery about their beers:
Leavenworth Boulder Bend Dunkel: Boulder Bend Dunkelweizen is an exceptional creation. This is an unfiltered dark Hefeweizen, with a gently sweet character infusing its medium-bodied smoothness. Notes of chocolate and caramel mingle with a cereal malt flavor contributed by additions of malted wheat. Other Northwest examples of this classic German style are rare and few. Certainly none are as tasty.
Weihenstephaner Dunkel: Supple, malty and mellow. Its harmonious flavour is the great strength of our dark wheat beer. Not only as a good combination with hearty dishes but consumed alone.
Erdinger Dunkel: Erdinger Weissbier 'dark' is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production. The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort.
