Pyramid Apricot Weizen

Posted by Dirk under: Uncategorized .

I love this beer. It’s about all I drink when I “drink”. Hardcore beer drinkers probably would think it’s a sissy beer cause it’s not bitter or hoppy, but screw those guys. I’m the one drinking and I’ll drink what I like. And right now, I’m liking this 😀

I used to drink all those other beers, the bitter stuff. The thick stuff. The dark beer. Hell, I live practically across the street from the Sierra Nevada Brewery. I smell that stuff brewing nearly every day. And I like the smell. But when I’m drinking, I like this apricot stuff, these days.

If you are tired of that bitter stuff, you should check it out. It’s mighty tasty! Bet ya can’t drink just one!!!!!

One Comment so far...

Most of my friends consider me a beer snob. I do drink hoppy beers that most people consider bitter, like the Pacific Northwest-style pales and IPAs. I also enjoy good porters and stouts. Not sure if this qualifies me as a “hardcore beer drinker”, but I do tend to drink beer that others find too strong. I leave the limp-wristed, watered-down swill to mass-market beer drinkers. Why people drink that crap is beyond me…

Anyhow, I have to agree that Pyramid’s Apricot is a great beer. Not just good, but great. Pyramid makes a very nice Hefeweizen (not as good as Widmer Bros., but that’s another thread). They’ve taken that and created a “fruity” beer that isn’t too sweet or over the top. It pairs well with spicy foods. It goes down easy on hot summer days. And, it’s a beer that can be shared with the ladies who are usually not beer drinkers.

If I had to compile a top ten “Beers I never get tired of drinking” list, Pyramid Apricot Weizen would probably be included. Along with Boont Amber, Widmer Hefeweizen, and Fat Tire, to name a few.
