Nelson Leader : February 7th 2013
9 THE NELSON LEADER, FEBRUARY 7, 2013 from the Foodstore on Collingwood Street, Nelson City German Beers At Fresh Choice -- Your Foodstore on Collingwood St the Grocer is always looking for great deals on fantastic products and if they happen to be new products that is even better. A couple of weeks ago he was offered a deal that was simply too good to turn down and that means he has some new products on the shelves at awesomely good prices -- German beers for $2.99 for a 500ml bottle. We have all heard about the famous, some would say infamous, Bavarian Beer Fests where huge amounts of bulk produced beer is consumed from steins by rowdy but happy crowds in beer halls set up for the purpose. However Germany also produces some outstanding bottled beers for moderate consumption where quality is considered much more important than quantity, a bit like the craft brewers here. The range the Grocer has secured is produced by two breweries in Germany, the first Hofbrau Heffe was founded in 1589 and the second, Bitburger founded in 1817 so there is plenty of beer making history in these bottles. Hofbrau Original is a light, fresh larger, as is the Bitburger while the Heffe Weizen is a wheat beer. We know the Grocer at Fresh Choice -- Your Foodstore on Collingwood St is a big fan and vocal supporter of local craft beers because they are fantastic products but he knows that sometimes you, the consumer, just want a great deal on good beer and that is what he has here. Also keep an eye on the beer shelves early February for a limited range of boutique German beers, including one made with Nelson hops! Schneider Nelson Sauvin 750ml at 7.3% abv (alcohol by volume), Schneider Hopfenweisse 8.2% abv and Schneider Eisbock 12% abv. These are Ultra-premium beers and will only be around for a few weeks so enjoy them while you can, they are a real treat.
