Wheat Beer Appreciation Society
« on: Jan 2 - 2013 »
I was supping a pint of Wheat Beer the other day thinking that'd it would be great to compile a list of SS pubs that stock it for the benefit of those who, like myself, are partial to a glass of the cloudy stuff now and again. Whilst I'm more than happy quaffing OBB when it's in fine fettle (and when you can get it in cask form these days), I do like a Wheat Beer, but unlike cask OBB which available in the bulk of SS pubs Wheat Beer is more sparsely found and I thought it'd be great if we could catalogue the pubs that stock it. I've gathered that it is not such a rare sight in London but in other areas I don't know quite so well where it can be found. If anyone would like to oblige in helping name the pubs that stock I'd be grateful...!

I'll start off with a few where I've seen it and can think of off the top of my head...     

Hanson Cab, York

The Angel and White Horse, Tadcaster

Nellie's, Beverley

The Abbey, Darley Abbey, Derby

Widow Cullen's Well, Lincoln

Robert Raikes, Gloucester

Princess Louise, Holborn, London

Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street, London

Crown and Sugarloaf, Fleet Street, London

Rising Sun, Smithfield, London

All Saints Brewery Inn, Stamford

Additions (Thanks for help):

The Blue Bell, Levenshulme, Manchester

Sinclair's Oyster Bar, Manchester

The Victoria, Cleveley, Blackpool

The Bird in Hand, Knolls Green, Knutsford

The Borough Bailiff, Knaresborough

Prince of Wales, North Shields

The Angel, Leeds

Pint568.   If go onto the pub list      http://samsmiths.info/forum/index.php/board,5.0.html  you can go though the list a pub at a time and look at the photos.  I've taken bar shots of most Sam's pubs that I've visited.   I only one more pub to photograph for a full house   ;D

The Victoria in Blackpool as a pump on the bar as well.

some years ago I went on a skiing holiday in Austria we stayed in a very small village with only one bar
for two days it snowed and we were trapped in the village no way in or out
some of the skiers had to bunk down with us and borrow clothes
totally cut off
the lager soon ran out
but never mind we quickly developed a taste for weissbeer!
happy days !

Always preferred the Wheat Beer to that of PBL/Alpine/Taddy also liked the Ayingerbrau up to the time it was phased out
Originally the Wheat beer was served from a ceramic font which had cast rings latterly changed to brass unfortunately because of breakages & high replacement costs HS decided to scrap all ceramics & introduced a 1-out 007 design font as used in Widow Cullens!

You can't beat a good wheat beer. I know it doesn't always go down too well over here as a lot of people drink with their eyes, and if it's not clear they won't drink it, regardless of taste. I've always been impressed with Sam's interpretation and, although I wouldn't compare it to some of the classic German Wei?beers (Weihenstephaner and Kloster Andechs are probably my favourite of the breweries I've visited), when it's served well it's probably my Sam's tipple of choice.  :BL

All the  London pubs I've been to in recent years stock the wheat beer, although ?4.24 a pint reduces my inclination to make it a regular choice.
