Office Hours tonight: German Wheat and Rye Beer.

Yes, I know: It's a slight let-down after the grandeur of last week's Imperial IPA festival, and yes, these wheat ales might be better understood in warmer weather, but as I explained last week, we might as well follow the BJCP's numerical pathway.

By popular demand: Comprehensive schedule for Office Hours with the Publican (through February 28).

We'll break out the Franziskaners, Weihenstephan, Schneiders and Aventinus (Doppelbock and Eisbock), but there'll be no Roggenbier, as they're almost impossible to find, and it is questionable whether they even merit separate designation ... but no one asked me, right?

Category 15 — German Wheat and Rye Beer

15A. Weizen/Weissbier
15B. Dunkelweizen
15C. Weizenbock
15D. Roggenbier (German Rye Beer)
