    Schneider and Brooklyn Unite

    German brewer collaborates with Brooklyn’s Garret Oliver

    Brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler of G. Schneider & Son brewery has teamed up with Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garrett Oliver to brew Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse 2.0.

    The strong pale weissbock (8% abv) is heavily dry-hopped with Drexler’s favorite American hop varieties. It is fermented using the Schneider Weissbier strain of yeast. Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse will be part of The Brooklyn Brewery’s Brewmaster’s Reserve Series, and will be released on draft in mid-August.

    Oliver visited the Schneider brewery in Germany nine weeks ago to brew the first version of Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse. This was essentially the same beer, but dry-hopped with the spicy Hallertauer Saphir variety of hop, grown in the fields near the Schneider brewery.

    “Essentially, “I brewed a beer in Germany to celebrate Schneider’s hop terroir, and now Hans-Peter is brewing a beer in Brooklyn to celebrate our hop terroir,” Oliver said.

    The bottle-conditioned Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse was released earlier this week, including in US markets where Schneider beers are sold.
