It was odd to say somewhat of a farewell to summer last week, with our Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat Friday Beerbuzz. It always seems like May through Aug fly and Nov through Feb drag, but I digress. I really enjoyed sharing Sunset Wheat with everyone on the show because I truly think this is a gateway beer that will help create craft beer lovers. Now I know all of the hard-core beer lovers out there may not consider it much of a beer, and that’s fine….but this is a beer I enjoy, and even though it may not be a Belgian Saison, it’s still an enjoyable beer. Also keep in mind that if a beer like Sunset Wheat helps create another local craft beer lover, then we as craft beer lovers are likely to see more and more great beers heading to NEPA. More demand = more good beers, and not just from Leinies.
So what will we be tasting this week?
Hint: This week’s beer was one of my first craft beers, however it makes me cry to think we hardly ever see it in NEPA these days.
Tune in at 8:30AM and see what beer we sample on the Friday Beerbuzz on WILK…bringing good beers and good people together.
