On Tap at the Independent Bar: Schneider Weisse Weissbier 

An original Weissbier, Schneider Weisse comes from a Bavarian brewery company founded in 1872 by Georg Schneider I and his son of the same name, after they acquired the Weisses Brauhaus in Munich; the oldest wheat beer brewery in the city.

The Original version from this brewery is amber-mahogany in color, this beer has a laced head that leaves traces on the glass. It is subtly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, and an aroma of cloves nutmeg and apple. The taste is fresh, clean, full-bodied, and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a slight sour impression.

From Scheider Weisse: 

 The wheat comes from the upper Altmühltal, lower Bavaria, and Upper Palatinate regions. The malting barley is grown in the Kelheim and Riedenburg areas. Hallertau hops are used to give the beers their bittering and aromatic properties.

And of note, the Schneider's have been at it for some time, now on it's 7th generation of brewers, and is still family run: 

The Schneider Dynasty: 

  • Georg Schneider I (1817-1890)
  • Georg Schneider II (1846-1890)
  • Georg Schneider III (1870-1905)
  • Mathilde Schneider (1877-1973)
  • Georg Schneider IV (1900-1991)
  • Georg Schneider V (1928-)
  • Georg Schneider VI (1965-)
  • Come by the Independent Tampa for a glass of this excellent and historic beer! 


    On Tap at the Independent Bar Tampa: Dogfish Head  Sah'Tea

    A take-off on a Finnish style beer called sahti. Brewed with rye, they caramelize the wort with white hot river rocks, then ferment it with a German Weizen yeast. In addition to juniper berries foraged directly from the Finnish country-side they added a sort of tea made with black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and black pepper. Has earthy overtones, and a banana breaded flavor mixed in with the spices, and sweetness. Interesting and delicious!
