Sometimes I wonder why we don't post these up here too...

Anyone going? That Vitus is some stuff, man. All of those beers rank up pretty highly in my favourite beers list, since they're all pretty stunning examples of the styles. Not sure there is a better Hefeweizen than Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen. Wonder if an order might be happening? Though, like Chimay, Weihenstephaner already has representation in Canada (Beer Barons is the importer?) so I imagine this has some different channels to go through.

Going, as well! It probably only took my husband 30 seconds after the e-mail came in to reserve our seats. So excited to try these! We've heard wonderful things about this brewery.

I would think that any order that included Weihenstephan would have the opportunity to get the others on this list as well (plus any new ones they've acquired in the last year).

Hey Chris, you've never looked at the blog on this site have you? Then again maybe no-one does?

Anyway, these should all be pretty tasty, see you all on Wednesday.
