SEE THAT? THAT’S A FROSTY BEAR REPUBLIC “WINE COUNTRY WHEAT”

Ain’t it beautiful? I tell ya, when we get a chance to have a delicious hefeweizen made by one of the country’s master brewers – BEAR REPUBLIC – we’re not going to think twice. So it was the other afternoon at San Francisco’s PI BAR, which has their WINE COUNTRY WHEAT on tap. It has all the characteristics of the classic German wheat beer and then some. It’s tangy. It has rich banana flavor. It’s only 4.5% ABV, so you could drink a boatload without working up a buzz. And it’s incredibly refreshing. Nothing says “session ale” to me more than a superb hefeweizen, and like most things Bear Republic makes, from IPAs to imperial reds to even pilsners, this is darn near the head of the class. 8/10.
