Beer is the ultimate barkada drink and it is also a brewing art form. It allows you to let off steam after days of hard work, plus, its uniquely crafted versions made of different ingredients just take the drinking experience to a whole new level. Now, if you’re looking for a new beer to enjoy on your next e-numan session, this one brings authentic German taste with the citrus flavors of grapefruit.

Established in 1978, Schöfferhofer Weizen brings to the Philippines its elegant and seductively fruity bottle of Hefeweizen. Also called Weisbbier or white beer, Hefeweizen is a best-known wheat beer that is made of barley, hops, and water—a standard in Germany according to its Beer Purity Law of 1516. Wheat was added to the process sometime later. But what makes Hefeweizen a standout is that “the yeast is not filtered out of the beer at a later stage and this gives the beer its typical cloudy character,” creating a flavor that is “a little sweet and fruity with a tangy lightness.”

To give more depth to the Hefeweizen’s taste, the brand hypes up its citron variety by pairing it with grapefruit. The result is the world’s first wheat beer grapefruit mix, the Schöfferhofer Grapefruit beer. An innovation as fresh and zesty as its taste, the amber-colored drink is a delightfully sparkling 50/50 blend of Schöfferhofer beer and fresh grapefruit juice, giving it a low alcohol content of 2.5 percent ABV. The winning combination makes a distinctive taste with a slightly citrus and a clove note, beer-drinking Filipinos, young and old, will definitely love it.

“The unique fruity and slightly sharp taste proved to be instantly inspiring,” says Dr. Thiele, the brand’s brewmaster. “It stands for one of the most successful beer innovations of all. And if you happen to find that the sun isn’t shining, when you finally open a Schöfferhofer Grapefruit, the sun will come out.”

Discover the refreshing essence of an endless summer night with Schöfferhofer Grapefruit, which is now available at The Marketplace, Landers, Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons EasyMart, AllDay Supermarket, Shopwise, Landmark Supermarket Pioneer Center Pasig, and Hi-Top Supermarket.
