How Hochzeitsbier The Wedding Beer Came To Be:
Jochen Fair of Russell Brewing Company in British Columbia was trying to come up with a special brew for his wedding. Something that would represent not only his and wife-to-be Heather’s love for each other but also, their love for beer.
Even though Jochen was still testing out his new beer creation, he entered the beer into a home brew contest and won the Russell Golden Stag Award. After this, Jochen new for sure that this was his wedding beer! You could say the beer was loved by all at Jochen and Heather’s wedding! Two whole kegs of Hochzeitsbier were emptied before the end of cocktail hour.
About Hochzeitsbier The Wedding Beer:
This German wheat ale comes in at an ABV% of 5 and lands a 14 IBU. Aptly named Hochzeitsbier – The Wedding Beer, this wheat ale has similar consistency to a bubbly which makes it the perfect wedding beer plus you can even get it in festive Champagne cork bottles. Also, as an added bonus for those of you with Vegan guests, it is vegan-friendly!
Let’s raise a glass of Hochzeitsbier to congratulate Jochen and Heather on their marriage, and Jochen on all his hard work in crafting this awesome, award winner, wedding beer! Or, pop a cork at your wedding and let the beer rain down!
