Would you like a lemon with that?
 
In Kansas City this weekend, I ordered a draft wheat beer from a local brewery. The bartender asked if I wanted a lemon with that...I looked at him like he was crazy :confused: Everyone else looked at me like I was crazy. The pregnant pause was finally broken when someone shouted at the bartender "...he's from Texas and doesn't know any better...just give him the lemon!" :D

The wheat was indeed very good with the lemon...I tried one later without, and it was definately better with. :cool: Everyone up there tells me that wheat's are ALWAYS served with a lemon slice. Is this true, or is it a yankee thang?

The brew in question by the way, is from Boulevard Brewing in KC...oh my gawd! Fourteen thumbs up at least. Trust me on this one...I checked it out at numerous locations around town just to be sure. :D

Every Hefe I have ever had has been with a lemon in it. If no glass is available I slide it into the bottle a la Corona style (not to be confused with Ron Jeremy-style).

Makes for a great summer afternoon, sipping a Hefe with some lemon. My buddy just finished brewing a wheat. He added some lemon zest to it, came out REAL nice.

Hmm. I guess. It's actually an all-over -the-world thing. Serving wheat beer with lemon has been around a loooong time. Maybe Texas is just slow?

I generally don't consider myself a Bush-basher, and do not condone much of what is said.... but Janx, look no further than our President for vindication of your statement.

Well, THWI...I am a Bush-Basher...one of the most dishonest-thieving-conniving...and the same goes for his father too! NAFTA wasn't a great success (for Americans) so how many American jobs are going to be lost with CAFTA?!?

Now, you want to discuss his grandfather working for the Nazi's DURING WWII, which is an act of treason?!?

As for lemon slices...I saw this done in Germany many years ago, but ONLY WHERE AMERICAN'S WERE STATIONED!!! :confused: DUH!!! The Germans don't do it!!

And speaking of "German's", "German Chocolate Cake" is NOT German, but British! It was the name of the baker who invented it! Hence, "German's Chocolate Cake"!

OK, I got that off my chest.....phew!! Just in time too! My soapbox bottom just fell out! :rolleyes:

Huh. Consider that can of worms opened. oops
