Bottled beer list piece by piece: BJCP styles 14 and 15.

For the sake of public discussion and viewing, I'm gradually posting sections of the new, evolving beer list at the NABC Pizzeria & Public House. Information is as yet incomplete, and I look forward to feedback. The current plan is to launch this effort in late January, which means that there'll be close-outs periodically as we offload and reload.

The goal remains using the bottled list to educate, and simplifying it so that the beers on it are always on it, every day. There'll be seasonal and specialty offerings, too, as compiled on other lists.


Bottled beer list piece by piece: BJCP styles 10 - 13.
Bottled beer list piece by piece: BJCP styles 6 - 9.
Bottled beer list piece by piece: BJCP styles 2 - 5.
No worries: Still a Lite-Free Zone, with no 1A allowed.

Weihenstephaner Dunkel not making the cut :(

Are there some mistakes in cat 15? Schneider Weisse is a hefe not a dunkel. It would be a 15A not 15B.

(1) We've not been carrying Weihenstephaner Dunkel, anyway.

(2) The BJCP itself classifies Schneider as Dunkel. It strikes me as leaning in that direction.

1) I discovered that the last time I tried to order it. I was hoping it was just out.

Is it not a consistent supply? Because I consider both Weihenstephaners to pretty much define their style. Not that Franziskaner is bad or anything.

2) Huh, yeah they do. Beer advocate has it at as a hefe, which I had open when I saw your post so just checked there. Judge at the KY state fair last year said my hefe reminded her of Schneider Weisse, now I wonder if that was an out of style comment. I considered it a positive at the time.

The current reality is that we sell a ton of Franziskaner, even though I like others better, including the Weihenstephaner and Schneider lines.

One thing we've talked about doing is having periodic "contests" prior to menu revision time, so as to provide the excuse to rotate items.

As for the Schneider: There is no "amber" weizen category, just Dunkel. Schneider's Original is one of the beers that just doesn;t fit comfortably.
