    Ok cool. Is Sebastian from Freigeist involved somehow in Jopen?

    As I was scrolling down this list Rauchbier immediately came to mind! And Dunkelweizen.

    Bière de Garde, I love this style and I rarely see them. Jack's Abby just did Private Rye which was awesome. Ommegang has made one or two which I tried and loved. I hardly see this style anywhere though. Would love to see more.

    The Grätzer was a collaboration of Jopen, Evan Rail, me and Monarchy of Musselland (which includes Sebastian).

    Three and a half pages and only one person mentions wheatwines?! That right there confirms that they are under appreciated. And the blank stares that I often get from store employees when I ask about wheatwines confirms that they are under produced.

    So, yeah- more wheatwines!

    I watched the Beer Hunter series way back in the 90s before I started grad school in Germany. I still go back to them to this day. Great stuff. And I, too, wish there were more Steinbier to be had; used to travel up to Coburg to buy crates of the Rauchenfels Steinbier back in the day (never was such a big fan of the Steinweizen...)

    Right now I'd have to say a good Czech Pislner. When done correctly it's the perfect session beer.

    Berliner Weisse, Kölsch ("Kolsch style ales" usually taste nothing like a Kolsch), Czech style pilsners, dunkel weiss, bier de noel.
