Funky Brews, Funky Music

Beer #149 Berlinerweisster / Round Guys Brewing Company, Lansdale, PA

A busy, rainy Monday here, with a very early morning coming tomorrow means I'm keeping it short but sweet today.  But short and sweet doesn't mean I can't share info on another new and local brewery, Round Guys Brewing out of Lansdale.  I tried the Berlinerweister, which was on draft at Capone's in Norristown.  Great beer list on draft, and an impressive, if small, bottle shop around back.  But back to the beer - it poured a hazy pale yellow in the glass, and looked more like lemonade than beer.  The aroma gave off aromas of citrus, grass, and funk from the brettanomyces.  The flavor had a nice mix of lemony citrus and dry, crisp, tart notes.  Definitely some funk in there as well, which was nice, along with some effervescent fizz.  Drinks sort of like a funky shandy.  This didn't have some of the banana or clove that I typically expect from a Berlinerweisse, but it was still a very nice choice at 4% ABV, particularly on a warm day.  

From their website, it seems they've been selling beer to the world since March.  Looking forward to seeing some of their other offerings on tap in the neighborhood.  Good luck, new and somewhat local brewery!

Thing to Think About Today:
Talked about Prince yesterday, and like magic a radio station played the "top 5 songs by Prince's proteges" today.  So, I've been singing this song all day, even though I don't know any of the words.  Now you can too!  A little funk in the beer, a little funk to close things out today - Sheila E, the floor is yours:
