3 months 10 beers – Attempt #4 – Brooklyn-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse

My wife and I are on a quest to find her 10 beers over the next 3 months that she can enjoy! We have found very few beers that she has enjoyed. Tonight’s challenge is a regular go to beer of mine. Brooklyn Brewery makes some pretty awesome beers, especially if you can get their Brewmasters Reserve draft beer, but they also make several 750ml cork and caged beers. One of personal favorites is Brooklyn-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse.

I’m not sure what it’s called and I don’t really give a shit because it’s really good! I’m not sure why Peter kept serving me all of that sweet shit but I LOVE IT!!! That’s right I said it, I love it. This is why I heart Brooklyn. Sadly, again, there are no wings, nothing to eat…I want the full experience. Bring on the next beer…with some hot wings this time.

This is one of those beers that I can smell for hours, it is so floral. The aroma was a bit overwhelming for her at the beginning as I thought, “Oh no another one she hates!” But, then she turns to me and says “I love this Beer”. Wow, I never thought I would hear those words from my wife. Maybe “this is good”, or “I could drink this”, but a “I Love this” was not one I expected. Then again it is an awesome beer and guess what is going to be a regular staple in my house. A couple months back I compared the Brooklyn-Schneider and the Scheider-Brooklyn Hopfen-Weisse, I think I may have to get a bottle of the German version to see if Dani likes it as well.

Garrett, please don’t stop making this beer!

    You know, I might have to try to get a hold of this one. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen anything other than the flagships are here, which, I wasn’t overly impressed with. Thanks for posting this, I’ll be looking for it!

  2. Simply Beer Says:

    You don’t any of the caged and corked over where you are in PA? I’m surprised! Let me know If I can send you something. They also have Local 1 and Local 2. Hopefully as the brewery expansion is done, we will see Dark Matter, Wild 1, Cuvee de Cardoz, and more Brewmmaster Reserve beers in 750′s.

  3. Vanessa Says:

    I love this beer too! Brooklyn makes such fantastic beers – maybe she would like the Sorachi Ace too?

  4. Mike Says:

    Yeah, Dani found one!

  5. Scott-TheBrewClub Says:

    I’ve only tried the imported version, but I loved it! Planning on grabbing this domestic one next time I see it. Definitely a winner!

    I can’t seem to find this beer from them anywhere here in Texas…at least not yet even though we get plenty from Brooklyn Brewery. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this Weisse and I’m usually not a huge fan of wheat beers. Like them plenty, just don’t usually prefer them.

    I still have yet to find anything from this brewery that I don’t like. My brother for example had their regular Lager for the first time last week. He was in awe and loved it.

    Love the golden honey like color on this one by the way!

    I may not be looking hard enough, Peter, I’m planning on checking a few spots this week, hopefully I’ll find something other than their Lager or Pennant… :(

  8. Khan Says:

    Come’on…a classy girl like Dani wants the Natty Ice! Give the gal what she wants!

  9. Simply Beer Says:

    We’ll save that for you when you come up for I visit. I know how you roll! :-)

  10. Rob Says:

    OK, I’m reading backwards but I’m glad I found one where it was a double positive, both of you love it. I really like this beer as well. Is Brooklyn Brewery gonna let this one die off as a one timer?

  11. Simply Beer Says:

    I sure hope Brooklyn doesn’t. This beer is way to good. If they do, I’m buying up as much as I can…
