I've recently found a fondness for hefeweizen style brews.

Ill keep an eye out for those, sometimes in the midwest we have trouble finding the good stuff.

A lot lighter than your great recommendations but all in what food you pair it with.

Not a micro-brew, but my favorite is from the oldest brewery in the world, founded in 1040. Weihenstephaner Kristall Weissbier. Only Moniger from Karlsruhe tastes as good to me.

I think Ill accept that even if not technically a micro, sounds like a winner, but also very hard to find I bet. Reminds me of maredsous (sp) cant find that one either.

Ryan- The Weihenstephaner can be ordered at most liquor stores in the US. The Moniger is only available in Germany, as far as I know.

For autumn evenings, the Leffe Dubbel (Leffe Brune) is a very nice dark beer.

I hate to say it as the Dutch make good beer, but overall Belgium is the best beer producing nation. Bar none. Even the Germans can't quite get there.

Onno- The Belgians do make great beers, but even their excellent whites do not quite match the weissen biers of German to me. But then, I am a wheat beer fan and that is all I drink if it is available. I do not like coffee and dark beers taste like coffee to me.

Agreed, any more than two pints is not a good pairing with power tools - which brings me to think of another must try - Chimay. Oh my, what a brew by the Trappist monks!

I've tried various Dortmunters.... I have to agree. The Belgiums know their stuff. I like the Dubbel also... but it is like drinking a steak dinner.

I was thinking of this post prepping for the feast tomorrow. Can't think of a better brew to have on Thanksgiving, right out of Plymouth, MA. Safe & happy day to y'all.
