WILK Friday BeerBuzz – 27 Aug 2010 (Weeping Radish Black Radish)

27 August 2010

WILKFridayBerbuzz7 I learned long ago that my favorite part of enjoying beer, is sharing it with others…especially if it’s a beer they’ve never tried.  With today’s beer I had a double treat.  Not only did I get to enjoy a beer that is near and dear to my heart, but also a beer that most local beer lovers have never tried…yet!

Many moons ago I sat at the small bar on Manteo Island in North Carolina enjoying a liter of beer.  The year was 1996, the biergarten was Weeping Radish and the beer was Black Radish.  This was one of my very early craft beer memories, and every time I enjoy a Weeping Radish Black Radish, I remember that warm summer day.WeepingRadish

We collected quite a few bottles that year and I remember how cool I thought the bottle caps were (who wouldn’t love a Radish in Lederhosen) and how great all of the Weeping Radish beers tasted.  Back in NEPA we managed to find Black Radish and Weizen, but sadly most of the Weeping Radish beers faded from our market.

WeepingRadishBlackRadish Black Radish is a wonderful dark lager and one I’d recommend trying.  Now it’s of course going to be a little tricky to find, but for those of us who regularly travel to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, check in any Harris Teeter or Food Lion and you’ll find it.  Or better yet, stop into the Weeping Radish farm & brewery in Jarvisburg and buy it direct.   While you’re there be sure to check out their Weizen, Fest and OBX beers.

As always it was another fun show and another tasty beer today. 

Thanks

to John, Nancy, Joe & Bosco for yet another fun Friday.

I get why it's on the "50 Beers You Have to Try Before You Die" list! Either have to arrange a road trip or convince someone a little closer to home to start carrying it!

And LOVE the "Beer Cam", check it out on www.wilknewsradio.com and click on Friday BeerBuzz!

Another great show and beer Bill, thanks!

I'll be in OBX next weekend and I can;t wait to try this out down there. I'll check Harris Teeter.

Thank you everyone. We'll bring out the BEER CAM again sometime in the future...and in Corolla North Carolina's Harris Teeter Black Radish can be found in the walk in cooler section!

I'm a regular listener now. You've done some really good beer (I still love 3 philosophers) I keep learning beer facts I never knew (who knew fresh beer was better) and you are all so funny I love it.
