Beer for Breakfast? Yesiree!


It’s morning and my mind is on breakfast so I thought I’d take a moment to share with you a new suggestion to start your day! I’m talking beer with breakfast, but more specifically, BananWeisse for breakfast!

This has got to be my favorite “mixed drink” now. You take Looza Banana Juice, which you can find at any Albertson’s Grocery Store in the natural foods aisle and mix it with a good, German Hefe Weisse  (wheat beer), like the Schneider Hopfen Weisse we carry at Amazing Grapes Wine Store.

Proportions: Fill a glass like the one in the photo about a 1/3 of the way full and top it off with the beer.

I know this isn’t original, but I’ve never had it before and I shared it with my serious beer drinking son and his friends, who had never had it before, so I’m sure this will be new to most of you.

The Heffe Weissen beer has a hint of banana in it already so the combination just works. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to enjoy this – too easy in fact.

FYI – This is a common breakfast drink in Germany. Did you know that beer is considered, and licensed, as a food in Munich? This allows children to purchase and drink beer. Not condoning childhood drinking by any means.
