You've been forewarned. I'm pretty sure there are a couple of Germans here, or at the very least maybe someone has an idea. I wanted to do something special for my lady friend and find a way to acquire some of her favorite beer. Now the most I can get from her is hefeweissen. Despite my Google mastery I can't tell if that's something you'd walk into the pub going "Gimme a Hefeweissen!" Or if that's the equivalent in America as saying eyyy gimme a beer. She spent a tour in Germany, thus, she isn't giving me much to go on, just /loluwouldntknow. Halp? <3

Well ExiDux got me started. Now I'm just trying to find a place to order beer from that area. Originally I was looking for an actual name of a Hefeweissen beer, which is in said article ^^.

Hefeweizen is what she tried to say ^^ It's Hefe + Weizen (Hefe=yeast, Weizen=wheat). But beer is made of wheat. So if you say "Ein Weizen, bitte" in a bar or pub (in a Kneipe), you won't get corn, nor bread, but a beer. A lighter one. There are differnt kinds of beer, but the normal beer is a Hefeweizen.
But we call it Bier usually ^^ There is also dark beer. That is why Hefeweizen (aka Weizenbier) is also called Weißbier (white beer). But Weizen und weiß are etymologically related to each other... sooo xP

Now the problem is, that ppl use all those names and mix them together. Not every Weizen is basically a Hefeweizen. And I am not sure if your friend knows the differences. Maybe she got a beer, which is no Hefeweizen really, and when you get her a real Hefeweizen, she might be disappointed. ^^

Now, there are different German brands, that are very popular. The one I know has the most popular Hefeweizen is Schöfferhofer. It's called "Schöfferhofer Hefeweizen naturtrüb". There are also grourmet beers. I know that "Püttner" sells some high class Hefeweizen. But it's very expensive!

Normal beers would be:
Hasseröder (said to be very popular with women"
Radeberger (a bit stronger, too stronk for my taste)
Clausthaler

But they are made in a different way. They are called "Pils" and brewed differently... So if your friend knows what she says, then you don't want one of these. ^^

Maybe it is the easiest to buy a Bierglas! ^^ A big German beer glass. Wink
