A Note on This Beer
The weather is getting warmer, and that means it’s time for Hefeweizens. These citrusy, bready brews are a sunny day staple!
And lucky for you, we’ve got a great one: El Jefe from J. Wakefield.
This Miami-based crew knows a few things about hot weather beers, so they infused their classic Hef with fresh coconut flakes to bring you a little taste of Florida’s beaches in every sip.
Not only is this J. Wakefield’s most popular beer, it’s also one of the Top 50 German Hefeweizens on BeerAdvocate! Tasters call it “probably the best Hefeweizen I’ve had,” and “so refreshing!”
That shouldn’t come as a surprise. Paste Mag named this team one of the Ten Best Breweries in the Country, and they have a higher UT-brewery rating than the craft superstars at Tired Hands, Anchorage, and Westbrook!
El Jefe is a great introduction to J. Wakefield’s beer.
Pop the top, and you’ll find tropical aromas of coconut layered atop hints of lemon and bread crust. Take a sip, and discover nuances of orange and plenty of biscuity malts. It’s dry on the finish, with just a touch of ripe banana.
Those sunny days are right around the corner, so stock your fridge with this refreshing Hef and you’ll have just what you need to stay cool as the temperatures rise.
