Sierra-Nevada-Has-Teamed-With-the-Worlds-Oldest-Brewery-for-a-New-Beer-new

For all the beer advances this country has made over the last handful of years, there are select styles that seem to have fallen by the wayside in the pursuit of juicy IPAs and candy-flavored stouts. None is more upsetting to us than the Hefeweissbier. While a few American breweries do the style justice (*cough* Live Oak *cough*), it’s hard to find a good Hefe and it’s even harder to find someone trying new things with the style. That’s why Sierra Nevada turned to Weihenstephan, the world’s oldest brewery and maker of one damn fine Hefe, to craft Braupakt, a Hefeweissbier with a little American hoppiness. With Weihenstephan involved, it’s hard to imagine this beer not staying mostly true to its German roots, which makes us pretty excited to pick up a six-pack when it hits stores in April.
