Summer time calls for a refreshing beer and Saint Arnold® Brewery has brewed up two hits with fantastic names that are worth “Chatting” about!
A little bit of information about the beers from the Saint Arnold® website:
Saint Arnold® Fancy Lawn Mower
“A true German-style Kölsch. Originally brewed in Cologne, this beer is crisp yet has a sweet malty body that is balanced by a complex, citrus hop character. Multiple additions of German Hallertauer hops are used to achieve this delicate flavor. We use a special Kölsch yeast, an ale yeast that ferments at lager temperatures, to yield the slightly fruity, clean flavor of this beer.”
Saint Arnold® Weedwacker
“Weedwacker is essentially a Bavarian hefeweizen. Except it isn’t. Weedwacker is exactly the same beer as Fancy Lawnmower Beer but we ferment it with Bavarian hefeweizen yeast instead of kölsch yeast. It is light and refreshing but has a spicy clove note and some banana esters that come from the different yeast. While it is a close relation to Lawnmower, it tastes completely different. Also, Weedwacker is our only unfiltered year-round beer. Expect to see some yeast at the bottom of the bottle.”
1 bottle of Saint Arnold® Fancy Lawn Mower Beer (Houston, TX)
1 bottle of Saint Arnold® Weedwacker Beer (Houston, TX)
Remove cap with a bottle opener pour into glasses, drink responsibly and enjoy! Lawn mowing and weedwacking optional! Also don’t forget to look under the bottle cap!
A seasonal Summer beer that I enjoy as well is Saint Arnold® Summer Pils (available May – August) and a year round non-alcholic Saint Arnold® Root Beer.
