I live next to a Bavarian deli. Right next door. Since I’m working from home now I’ve decided start enjoying some of their fine products for lunch.
Based on the advice of Jason Seifer I’m trying Weihenstephaner.
I have no idea how to pronounce it, and I’m too lazy to look it up. (-see update)
Bottle opened.. a bit of a nice yeast smell. First sip.. very carbonated. Very rich taste.. but still drinkable. I’m pretty happy with it. I’m looking forward to see how it tastes with my other acquisition, Garlic Salami. They have a couple dozen types of salami.. but this is my favorite so far because I LOVE GARLIC!
I don’t know how sensitive the beer is to temperature but I do not believe the beer was kept cool before it was in their beer cooler. The center of the ‘market’ part of their store is taken up by cases of the various beers they sell.
I’m now eating my garlic salami sandwich and I’m impressed. The garlic flavor is strong. I love this salami. The beer is holding up nicely. The beer flavor is still sharp and strong and is not overwhelmed by the salami.
Update: from Jason via email: It’s pronounced “veye-hen-stoff-en-er”
-Thanks, Jason! It took me a week to pronounce ‘hefferveisen’ correctly.
