It’s funny when you’re considered a “beer guy”, “beer geek” or even “beer expert.” People have all sorts of pre-conceived notions and sadly many of these notions assume some level of beer snobbery. Thankfully that’s not the case. To help reinforce that point I enter today’s beer as “Exhibit # 1.” I chose a beer for today’s show that is not only decidedly mainstream, but also a beer from a brewery owned by one of the big macro breweries, SAB-Miller. Now granted Leinie’s is brewed independently, but it’s still mainstream. And here’s my admission of the day. I chose this beer because I like it. So as I’ve always said…love what you drink and drink what you love…regardless of what anyone else may think about it.
We had fun with this summer beer today on the show and it’s always fun just saying “Leinenkugel’s.” Yes some people think it tastes like fruity pebbles mixed with beer, but I think this is a beer worth trying….and you may be surprised to find you like it too. Get yourself a frosty cold mug and a bottle of Leinie’s Sunset Wheat and let me know what you think.
Another fun show and tasty beer today.
I want to say t
hank you to John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.
The Friday Beerbuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
