Pic(k) of the Week: Weizen al fresco

A patron enjoys his hefeweizen, while sitting outside on the patio at Gordon Biersch Restaurant Brewery.

Weizen alfresco

A 'blast from the past,' this photo was taken on 30 March 2013, during a 'friends and family' pre-opening open house at the brewpub, located in the Navy Yard neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

  • Hefeweizen:
    "Hefe" means yeast, and "Weizen" means wheat, so Hefeweizen is "yeast wheat." Germans prefer to call the brew Weissbier, while North Americans prefer the term Hefeweizen. The beer is yeast turbid, because it is unfiltered. Pronounce it "hay-fuh-veyt-sssenn" (NOT "haffie-vi-zon").
