Week 1: "Must Haves"
Posted: June 02, 2009
In anticipation of the first week of Binnys international craft beer sale, which will recognize Germany and Austria, we compiled a list of beers that we consider "must buys." If you missed the previous blog regarding the details of Binnys international craft beer month, be sure to check it out. Without further ado, here is our list of "must buys" for the first week of international craft beer month. Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier 6- Pack Pumping out their first beer in 1040, Weihenstephaner is the oldest brewery in the world. Why not experience their most famous beer, the Hefe Weiss, when it is two dollars off? Monschoff Schwarzbier 5L mini keg The schwarzbier style is an often misunderstood one. Its pitch black color leads to the misconception that it will be a heavy beer, when in reality this beer is light and smooth. The 5L mini keg seems to be a misunderstood package also, when in reality a beer will taste just as good, if not better, out of a mini keg when juxtaposed with any other packaging. At four dollars off the base price, this is a must have. Einbecker Ur-Bock or Einbecker Maibock 6-pack The first bock beers were brewed in of Einbeck, Germany, and Einbecker has long been given credit as the original bock beer. Could there be a better time to enjoy these rich and malty beers than when they are four dollars off for a six pack? Gosser Dark 6 pack - $6.99 for a 6- pack of an imported beer is almost unheard of. We cant think of one that is a better bang for the buck than Austrias Gosser Dark. Obviously there are many other deals worth pondering; these are just a few we as beer lovers recommend taking advantage of. And if Germany and Austria arent your fancy, perhaps the United Kingdom will gratify your taste buds next week. Do you have and "must haves" for this week?
