Mango Weizen

Sunday, 18 October 2009

I met up with a few Twitter friends at The Been Stein in Downtown Eugene early this evening to chat.  Topics ranged from pets, building houses, jewelry, and cooking to kayaks, green living, holiday traditions and wedding planning. 

The Stein has an interesting wheat choice on tap right now, Mango Weizen out of Seattle, Washington.  It is brewed by Trade Route Brewing and boasts a heady mango flavor!  It has the traditional cloudy-orangish color of wheat beers and is light and crisp. 

Now that Fall is closing in, an Amber Ale or Rouge Chocolate Stout is a nice choice but the Mango Weizen would be a perfect beer for a warm summer evening.

Thanks for organizing the latest tweetup! The Bier Stein is a great locale. Your Mango Weizen looked very good but I am glad Thomas chose the stout (so I could have a few sips), it was nice for the fall evening.

I enjoy trying regional brews.
I will have to put Bier Stein on my list of places to visit when I eventually make it out that way.

LizP - Can't take the credit for the get together. @ooh_lala suggested we get together but it was a blast. Chris - You'll like it!
