Friday Beer Blogging: Hacker Pschorr Edition

Another favorite beer of mine is Hacker Pschorr Weisse. I can't believe I haven't blogged about it already. I had to search my archives to make sure I hadn't. Anyway, as you might have guessed, it's another German wheat beer.

I actually hadn't had a Hacker Pschorr in a while (I used to drink them a lot at Springfield's Brewhaus when they had it on tap), but Super Bowl Sunday I had the opportunity to drink a few at the party I attended.

Hacker Pschorr is brewed in Munich and you can read more about that here. They've been around for more than 500 years.

The Hacker Pschorr website has a video demonstration on how to properly pour a Hacker Pschorr. The video is pure beer porn.

Have a great weekend! And have a Hacker Pschorr, it's the Weisse thing to do.

We use to drink Hacker Pschorr at the Red Lion on Lincoln Ave in Chicago 25 years ago when we would come up from Champaign. Besides the great taste being memorable the bartender/owner was way ahead his time as far as nipple piercing goes. It is common occurence now but it grossed me out. But it was the only place we knew to get this great beer.
