|Town Hall Hefeweizen|
A perennial Town Hall favorite, just wait and it will come around again if you missed it. BA's on BeerAdvocate aren't nearly as glowing about this beer as I am. Reading through the reviews, it seems like they are drinking different beers. In my experience, this has been somewhat true. When I opened the growler, I decided to do the review, in part, because it's a good version of this brew. Not the best that I've had, but really good. However, I've had it a couple of times that it's not quite up to its own standard. Not sure if it's a variability of the batch or if time affects this one. Showing up when it's tap has proven to be a good strategy in the past when I've had the better pints of hefeweizen.
Plus, though I don't generally care about styles (thus why I don't judge homebrew competitions), TH's hefe, like Masala Mama, probably won't win a medal at GABF any time soon. Medals are about hitting the style bullseye and some of Town Hall's beers just don't hit that target--but when they are this good, I surely don't care. I don't drink medals.
