When it comes to wheat beer, there is no brewery more significant than Schneider Weisse. Still owned and managed by the Schneider family, they enjoy a rare combination of historical importance and progressive ‘craft’ credentials considered practically heretical by Bavarian traditionalists.

After Georg Schneider saved the style from extinction in 1872, the brewery has established itself through not one, but two world classics, both brewed for over a century. Still made to their original recipes, and using costly open vessel fermentation, Schneider Original - the mother of all wheat beers - and Unser Aventinus - the world’s first wheat doppelbock - are true benchmarks.

The current Brewmaster, Hans-Peter Drexler, has expanded the range whilst retaining the focus on quality and tradition. Without deviating from wheat beers, Schneider Weisse have embraced the innovation and experimentation that has come to define modern craft beer movements around the world. Old and new in one pint glass.

Hopfenweisse

Hopfenweisse

Style: Weizenbock
ABV: 8.2%

A new wheat beer stlye described by the brewery as 'hoppy firewords'. Golden but slightly reddish in colour it's a strong wheat doppelbock. The intense floral aroma reminds you of tropical fruits and relieves the powerful bitterness. An extreme wheat beer that shows how far wheat beer taste can go.
