If you already took advantage of Prost’s Bronco post-game recovery plan, then you are now well aware of the revitalizing properties of a traditional German Weißbier packed full of B vitamins and minerals. To keep your energy up for the upcoming Super Bowl XLVIII, Prost is offering $9.99 Weißbier Wednesdays, ensuring that Denver’s most devoted German beer drinkers will be fully prepared to sport their Broncos pride when the time comes!
Best of all you won’t be compromising on flavor or pleasure in the name of health. Besides its restorative properties, Weißbier’s complex flavor profile make it one of the most unique tasting German biers. Unlike other blond German biers such as the Prost Pils that bring you an up front bitterness, Weißbier is less hopped so as not to disguise the natural flavor complexity that results from the interplay of Weißbier ale yeasts and the numerous trace elements present within the wheat. Unexpected flavors such as banana and clove will awaken and excite your palate just as the extreme effervescence characteristic of a traditional Weißbier sweeps your palate clean so that you yearn for “just one more sip.”
Weißbier’s bubbly texture is the result of a process known as bottle or tank conditioning. The process can be achieved by making use of that lingering yeast found in any traditional Weißbier that also provide those much desired extra B vitamins! By mixing the finished and fully fermented beer that is still full of yeast with a fresh and unfermented beer, the brewer provides the yeast with plenty of fresh food (i.e. sugar) to ferment, producing more alcohol and carbon dioxide in the process. With the cap already on, the carbon dioxide has no where to escape so that it will remain in solution until the glass full of Weißbier is poured, brimming with bubbles.
With some bubbly, yeast (and B vitamin!) filled, light golden bier, you will be on your way to sporting your Bronco mania in full force. $9.99 Weißbier Wednesdays will provide you with that energy boosting sweet blond German bier that every Bronco fan needs to ensure that on this year’s Super Bowl Sunday, they will arrive with their A-game.
