We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at tips@philadelphiaweekly.com.

Bucks County finally has a place on the beer map thanks to the work of Neshaminy Creek, local brewers who are doing a bang up job of reinvigorating interest in classic styles. The dunkelweizen is one of those styles. This is a German wheat beer brewed darker and richer than you usually expect from a wheat. This PA brewery’s version pours a faded brown color with a frothy, creamy head, and gives off lovely aromas of sweet malts and cloves. The taste gives you bananas with mild hints of chocolate, rye grains, and lots of sweetness offset by a touch of spice, a combination begging to be paired with rich sausage and other German meats. This was a fall seasonal, so it’s coming off the taps now, but look for other Neshaminy brews at Churchville Inn and Cedar Point
