Well, I learned something here. I was told by a bartender that Hefeweizen was a German beer. I always buy Pyramid brand and I love it. I didn t realize that this beer is actually brewed in the U.S.

As John pointed out if you aren't buying Hefeweizen label it might be. Budweiser has a beer specifically branded Hefeweizen and I thought that's what you were referring to. This is the product I was referring to:

Introduced 1984
  • Pronounced “Hay-fa-vi-tsen,” it’s German for yeastwheat, a name derived from the suspended yeast and the use of malted wheat as a brewing ingredient
  • Widmer Hefeweizen is left in its natural, unfiltered state to retain a pronounced citrus and floral aroma, complex flavor, and crisp, refreshing finish ... an unforgettable experience
  • Widmer created the American-style Hefeweizen category. Today, Widmer is the standard by which all Hefeweizens are measured
  • In addition to being America’s original, Widmer Hefeweizen is the most popular and top-selling brand of Hefeweizen in the country
  • The Great American Beer Festival selected Widmer Hefeweizen as America’s best in 1998. Widmer received the only gold medal out of 56 beers entered in the American-Style Wheat category
  • Founded in 1984 by brothers Kurt and Rob, the Widmer Brothers Brewing Co. has the top-selling craft beer brand in the Pacific Northwest and is one of the leading craft brewers in America

Ok I am not a beer drinker at all, never have been doubt will ever be, but I think this thread is like any other. For example, what cheese is in your fridge, or what wine... I also know that some beers like Guiness for example is an Irish beer, but in Kenya it says brewed in Kenya. It's Irish alright, but they use the same recipe for when they brew it in Kenya. Ok, The beer in my fridge is Tusker beer from Kenya and Guiness. As a child I remember the guiness advert, 'Guiness is good for you' Still don't believe it, not my taste, but I hear it's got loads of iron! Anyway in Kenya we say, 'My country is Kenya, my beer is Tusker'(can't stand beer, but................................. I am patriotic!

I can't begin to name all the beers in my fridges, nor the liquors in my cabinet/bar. I'll have to do an inventory and get back with everybody. I have one full fridge, a small fridge and a bar that, in a pinch, could seat 8, which also has a shelf behind it with bottles of various liquors and liqueurs.

Here's an old inventory. It's quite different now, as I just went on a beer run to Atlanta this past weekend and spent over $100 just on beer.

Lots of Arrogant Bastard
Lots of Stone Imperial Russian Stout
Lots of Stone 8th Anniversary
A few Stone IPAs
A couple of Stone Ruinations
Sleeman Cream Ale
Guinness
Old Speckled Hen
Anchor Christmas beers of several vintages
Kohstritzer
Spaten Optimator
cheap beers of various ilks
Rogue Shakespeare Stout
Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout

I just added a case of Yuengling Lager and a case of Yuengling Black and Tan.

Well, I put it out in the garage. My fridges are all full.
