royaleJust about every Tuesday evening, The Royale hosts an event called Tuesdays With The Beertender. Matthew Thenhaus who writes The Beertender columns for the Riverfront Times, guides you through the wonderful world of beer styles and beer history.  This week he’ll be featuring European Wheat beers styles.  Here’s a quick synopsis of what will be on tap:

Nothing wrong with a light, spritzy American wheat beer in the summertime. Europeans, however, get to enjoy all that wheaty refreshment with an extra wallop of flavor. Whether it’s Belgian witbier or German weissbier, Old World wheats are a very different experience and tonight we revel in their glory.

Featuring St. Bernardus Wit, Franziskaner Hefe-Weiss, and two American takes on the styles: Cathedral Square White Ale and Sierra Nevada Kellerweis.

As Matt is extremely passionate and extremely knowledgeable this is a great opportunity to not only enjoy some great beer, but to learn about just some of the great styles of beer we have available in St. Louis.
