Way back in 1999 after my first couple of stints as a brewer, I started working with Thunderhead Distributing, a craft beer distributor in Atlanta, GA. The goal was to learn more about the beer industry. Without a doubt they provided me with a great education on the many styles of beer that were available. Thunderhead carried beers that no major distributor at the time would touch. One of the more unique beers that made an impression on me was Berliner Kindl Weisse. We only carried it in bottles and every 6pack was delivered to the retailer with a pack of syrups to add to the beer. That was the beer was traditionally served in Germany and we were determined to keep that tradition going in the US. Unfortunately in 1999 most retailers had no idea what to do with the syrups and likely just trashed them after we left. Shame, shame, shame.

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to be a guest in the Creature Comforts taproom in Athens, GA for the wake of Bob Weckback, a good friend and one time co-worker. While the circumstances were not ideal, I did enjoy the Berliner Weisse that was being poured with different flavored syrups. It reminded me of the days back in 1999 when I first discovered that style of beer. Berliner Weisse has really taken off with craft beer drinkers in the US over the last couple of years and UpCountry is happy to take part in the renaissance of the style. Originally produced at over 700 German breweries in the 1700's that number dropped to only 2 breweries by the end of the 20th century. Once again, US craft brewers have brought a "lost" beer style back to the forefront and UpCountry is proud to introduce our taproom visitors to this style.

To that end and to honor Bob, we are proud to introduce Bob's Berliner Weisse as the newest addition to our Simply Sour series. Only available on draft in our Asheville taproom, this effervescent, tart beer made with a majority of wheat is perfect for these hot and humid summer days. Coming in at 4.2% ABV, the light body and acidic finish is delicious and ridiculously refreshing. Go the extra mile and try it in traditional German fashion with one of our four house made syrups: blueberry thyme, lemon ginger, honey ginger, and grapefruit rosemary.

And if you have the chance, check out Bob's playlist on Spotify. It was named Cellarman's Spirit in his honor. Some great jazz tunes to be found here.
