Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Wurzburger Hofbrau was founded way back in 1643 and is one of Germany's oldest brewers. This beer shows off their dedication to crafting wonderful beers, such as this Hefe. It is, as all good German beers are, brewed under the Bavarian purity law of 1516 (Reinheitsgebot). This means that Wurzburger Hofbrau has been creating beer for nearly 200 years prior to the law.

Wonderfully tasty and super easy to drink, give this one a try the next time you are ordering a Hefeweizen.
