CASK ALERT: Schneider Wooden Edel-Weiss

Many years ago, the beer brewed for Octoberfest was not necessarily the standard maerzen style lager beer associated with the event today. ┬áThe festival was in October rather than September, and it was often quite cold out, making necessary richer and stronger beers. Thus, Schneider’s Wiesen Edel-Weisse was made to be warming. It wasfull bodied, as the malt contained a fair amount of unfermentable sugar. In order to balance such a beer, it had to be brewed with more hops for balance, resulting in more noticeable hop character than is usually found in hefe weizens.

A wooden cask will be tapped today, 6 pm at Deckard’s Kitchen & Kegs.
