Default Erdinger Octoberfest Weizen

Tried this on Saturday night. I thought it was just an Octoberfest when I ordered it. It was good. I saw the tap handle after I bought the second round. The Weizen part wasn't that pronounced...

Strange, an O'fest is normally an amber Marzen beer while a Weizen is wheat.

Ja, aber Erdinger only makes Weizens of various sorts. They are Germany's largest privately owned Weizenbier brewery.

I used to buy Erdinger Hefe-Weizen by the case at the Class VI beer store at MacDill AFB. Paid $3.20 a bottle, I sure do miss the beer in Germany.
Another reason that I am getting back into brewing.


A good hefe, with a fresh Doner Kabob...ummmmm

I was at Cl VI in Sep at Ft Sill and they sold me 2 cases of Paulaner HW for $18.95 a case (20 - 0,5 liter bottles)...they screwed up and I took it... $3.20 a bottle is way overpriced even at CL VI...$2.20 tops.

The guy behind the bar said it was an octoberfest. I had heard of Erdinger, but didn't know they only did weizens. I found this on it:
