When it comes the beer calendar, many breweries are now releasing their spring seasonal beers. One local Portland brewery is set to do just this. Zoiglhaus Brewing will release Zoigl-Weiss in 500mL bottles. Zoigl-Weiss will be available in the Zoiglhaus taproom and major retailers in Portland Metro area and Central Oregon.
Weißbier is one of the most popular styles in Germany. And for good reason, since a fine Weißbier is delightful both on its own and when drinking with nearly any food. In fact, when asked what beer he would want if stranded on a desert island, our Braumeister says Zoigl-Weiss is on the list! The light breadiness from the blend of German wheat and barley malts pairs with the special Bavarian yeast strain that provides a fruity banana ester with a light clove spiciness. Prost!
Zoigl-Weiss is the spring seasonal bottle that will be followed by Hell in Summer, Fest in Autumn, and Schwarzbier in Winter. It joins the year-round package lineup of Kölsch and Pilsner in 500mL bottles, and Pilsner and Hopfenbombe IPA in 12oz cans.
