Many years ago, the beer brewed for Octoberfest was not necessarily the standard maerzen style lager beer associated with the event today. The 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.

Brick Store Pub’s Anniversary is looming. Continuing the tradition of a special tapping each day the pub brings you Schneider Aventinus Eisbock Wooden Cask. This beer is an eisbock, created by freezing off a portion of water and extracting it from the beer. What is left behind is a higher concentration of beer that is more pronounced in flavor and alcohol.
Schneider Weizen-Eisbock is brewed by Private Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn, or Schneider for short. Its a damn good beer with high marks from all the beer drinkers, raters, geeks, etc.
Taste Expecations – Dark fruits, raisins, touch of clove. This eisbock has a nice malt backbone also.
This beer taps from a wooden cask, at 5 pm today (6/10)
