While in between beers, team beer is having to make do with what’s on the market. Luckily, what’s available is better than ever. My current fixation is Dunkelweizen, a German-style dark wheat, the sibling of ever-popular Hefeweizen. I first had Dunkelweizen two years ago on a trip to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland where every self-respecting beer garden serves both light and dark wheat beers. When I came back it was nowhere to be found, until now that is. San Jose, CA-based Gordon Biersch has a very tasty version that you can enjoy now while we ponder our next project.
Here I am (looking like a slightly weary traveler) enjoying some German brew. You can experience the enjoyment now without the long journey. Bottoms up!
