The History of Pinkus Organic Hefe-Weizen
Wheat beer is a Bavarian specialty. In the 16th century, the Electors of Bavaria declared beer made from wheat to be a monopoly of the state, which remained for centuries.
Very light in body and color. Crisp, dry, spritzy, and refreshing unfiltered beer. Clean ale-yeast aroma and flavor, without the characteristic yeasty spiciness of a Bavarian wheat beer.
Smoked trout salad; schnitzel, choucroute garni (sausages, ham and bacon served over sauerkraut), spinach salads with boiled shrimp, gazpacho. Serve in tall vase-shaped glass garnished with a thin slice of lemon.

About the Pinkus Brewery
The Pinkus-Muller brewery traces its origins to the family’s arrival in the Northern Germany town of Munster in 1816. At that time, Johannes Muller and his wife Friederika Cramer started a brewery and a bakery. Since their arrival there have been 150 breweries in Munster. Only Pinkus remains.
Today, the fifth and sixth generation of the family operate the famous Pinkus-Muller Pub/Brewery. So dedicated to quality is Pinkus, that they are the world’s first brewery to brew with only organically grown barley malt and whole hop blossoms.
Pinkus Brewery is certified organic by USDA-accredited ABCERT GmbH – a copy of the certification letter can be viewed here (341 KB .pdf).
