Beer & Chips Pairing: Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier & Frito-Lays Lays Wavy Ranch

This beer & chips paring I’ve paired Frito-Lays, Lays Wavy Ranch potato chips & Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier, 5.4% ABV. This is the oldest breweries in the world dating back to 1040, and this beer is a traditional German Hefe Weissbier from Bavaria, and the Lays Wavy Ranch chips aren’t anywhere near as old. Lays Wavy Ranch are yellow with green onion flakes with big wavy ridges, that have a ranch potato aroma to them more ranch notes comming off them.  Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier has a banana and clove aroma. The chips have a nice crunch with good amounts of ranch flavor and light green onion that complement the banana, clove, and wheat of this Hefe without washing out the ranch flavoring with a nice ranch potato finish and a light clove and banana that give way to a faint ranch flavor. Well, I absolutely love Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier it’s a classic and it does pair very nicely with Frito-Lays, Lays Wavy Ranch potato chips because Hefe Wiessbiers pair very will ranch-flavored thing like these chips and ranch dip. Frito-Lays, Lays Wavy Ranch potato chips & Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier Beer & Chips Paring is an A. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly! 

Throwback Thursday: Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Kellerweis

I haven’t had too many Sierra Nevada beers, but I did see this Hefeweizen, an unfiltered wheat, and though it would be good for a beer tasting on American wheat beer. This is an old microbrewery in Chico, CA and soon they will have another brewery here in the Asheville North Carolina area soon. They have been brewing beer since the eighties,& probably&older than me. I really enjoyed this hazy brew, but I can say the same about most wheat beer. Wheat beer is one of my top favorite styles. Kellerweise pours a rich hazy-golden color with a nice bright foamy white heat. There is a nice spicy clove and banana scent that is nice and pleasant and just wonderful. About the same can be said for this one’s taste, but there is a nice ripe banana too. Yes, there is a faint bit of wheat but you should know that if you’ve had a wheat beer before. The finish is nice crisps a tiny bit spicy and good. This Hefe is one I’ll try again very soon. A day or two after having this I still want more and couldn’t stop thinking of it. It is just really good but simple at the same time. Really good work on Sierra Nevada’s part. Well done! This is great with grilled sausages, a big juicy hamburger, or good chicken wings. This is also good on a hot day when you want to relax and feel refreshed, cause this Sierra is most refreshing. This is an A+. I loved it! Cheers! Please drink responsibly!
