I got a couple pm's about my Wagner Weizen recipe from a guy who's last name is Wagner and he wanted to know where the name came from so I thought I'd share it with everyone else.

I'm a musician, and one one of the instruments I play regularly is the tuba, so a few of my brews have tuba related names:

BBb Bitter
Pedal Tone Porter
Old Helicon Barleywine
Cimbasso IPA

The Wagner Weizen continues with this tradition. Since hefeweizen is a German style and the correct pronunciation is with a "V" it just made sense to use the name of the classical composer Richard Wagner (Re-card Vag-ner). Wagner is most famous for his german operas, most notably the Ring cycle, a series of four operas continuing an epic story about a magic ring and good vs. evil, not unlike the Tolken Lord of the Rings series. You have definately heard Wager before, you just didn't know it. Ride of the Valkyries (Duh de de duh duh!, Duh de de duh duh!, Duh de de duh duh!, Duh de de duh duh!) and the Wedding March (Here comes the Bride) are some of the most well known. To make the tuba connection even further, Wagner developed and used some different horns in his orchestration that came to be known as "Wagner Tubas", even though they aren't really tubas at all.

Wagner Tuba

And just in case you are completely confused on the Cimbasso IPA, here's a pic of it as well. It has the guts of a tuba and the bore of a trombone. The range is of the tuba, but tone is more biting like the trombone. They are often used in hollywood movie scores to give more edge to the low brass.
