Helles is an all time favorite of mine, but sometimes I like to mix it up for a party or gathering. I've experimented with many of our Natural Fruit Extracts and found that Strawberry is an awesome addition if done correctly. Add 2 oz. prior to bottling and taste. Add more as needed.
Helles is a great beer and it is hard to choose a bad food option to drink it with. As silly as it sounds the team has enjoyed it with Chinese take out on more than one occasion. Something about the refreshing crispness of the Helles and an over abdunance of salty meats and veggies really works!
