Trumer Pils/Mothership Wit

Posted by Maggie on February 19, 2011

My favorite locally brewed beer is Trumer Pils, brewed in Berkeley.  It is flavorful but not bitter, very refreshing, and has a lovely after-taste.  I went out for Vietnamese food last night for a work dinner and had a curry.  Trumer Pils was a great combo with the mild spicy flavor.   It really goes with everything.

My favorite ‘green’ beer is Mothership Wit brewed in Fort Collins CO by New Belgium Brewing.  This is what is said about this beer on the New Belgium website:

Our first venture into organically-produced beer, Mothership Wit Organic Wheat Beer elevates the zesty Wit or White beers of Belgium. Our far-flung Beer Rangers affectionately refer to our Fort Collins brewery as the Mothership, a name that conjures images of earth shot from space and the interconnectivity of it all. Mothership Wit is brewed with wheat and barley malt, as well as coriander and orange peel spicing resulting in a balance of citrus and sour flavors held in suspension by a bright burst of carbonation.
