    This is my favorite from the Weihenstephaner line because of the maltiness. It has enough bite to keep it interesting. I plan on attending their 1000 year brewery party with one of my best friends.

    Fruit beer that even I can get into. Not overly sweet with hints of the the suggested fruit. Summer time and share a pitcher with friend. Short's production will continue to grow with products like this.

    Got this for a buddy a couple years back and he still talks about it. There are lots of other stronger beers our there, but the beer is powerful to handle the sugar. I think it's very worth the price when you don't want to have to carry a lot of bottles.

    This beer gets me in trouble every year at Founder's Black Party. One year it was so strong even the brewery got in trouble. Woops. This is the perfect nightcap. Not for consuming mass quantities.

    I'm partial to this as Founder's is where I learned to appreciate good beer. @pohlman4 is right about it being hoppier than most similarly styled beers but the balance is done very well.

    An incredibly versatile beer. It's a touch too sweet for my tastes when served cold. Warm it up and put it in a mug. Impress your date and turn it into Sangria. A beer that does all this should come home with me again.

    Founder's is my standard. The original brewmaster is a family friend. They make incredible beverages and have a great scene. Highly recommended.

    The beer is excellent. Located in downtown Holland the crowd is fairly conservative but the beer is excellent. Food is better than most brewpubs but not a world class kitchen.
