If you're afraid to jump into the world of microbrews, start with Leinenkugel's. They produce good solid beers that aren't overly complex, but they're a hell of a lot better than that swillwater called Budweiser.

Leinie's Sunset Wheat is a perfect example. It's a sunny American wheat with a good cloudy--but not overly so--appearance that is a touch darker than many wheats. It also doesn't have the typical banana notes; rather, it has a slight citrus character. The smooth, creamy aroma perfectly mirrors the smooth, creamy taste. A slight bite on the finish nicely rounds out this refreshing brew.

Next time you're looking for a good wheat beer that doesn't taste really fruity, grab a Sunset Wheat. You won't be sorry.

Beer Dorks News

Want to know how healthy the craft beer industry is? As always, look to Portland. Craft pioneer Bridgeport announces sudden closure, adding to a growing list of PDX casualties.
Did Anheuser-Busch Chicago offer their shit beer to Cody Parkey before his missed field goal? Because that may explain why he "accidentally" biffed it.
Chicago now has the most breweries of any city in the country. Other things Chicago has the most of: murders, mobsters, and Ditkas.
Trying to spin it positive, BA releases end of year graphic. Only 5% growth in the craft sector when nearly 1000 new breweries opened? That's a collapse waiting to happen.
R.I.P. Tallgrass... another casualty as the regional/national craft beer market continues to get squeezed.
Wait... Constellation Brands cut all of the Ballast Point and Funky Buddha sales staff? They merged it with their Corona/Modelo staff?? We're SHOCKED!!!
Pizza Beer founder crying about failure of company, blames everyone else. Reminder, the beer tasted like vomit. Try having better ideas or making better products so you're not a failure.
It's Bud Light so doesn't really matter, but we expect this beer to be sitting around for awhile.
Indiana brewery to open with controversial beer names to "get the conversation going". Translation: taking advantage of serious issues for free publicity.
Hundreds of amazing beers in Wisconsin and the Cubs took back the one everyone drinks just because it exists and people have heard of it. How fitting...
