i work for a miller/leinie's distributor and we don't have it yet. big butt is the spring and that should be finishing up shortly. there should be a bigger amount of berry weiss produced this year, according to their website.

also look for "sunset wheat"

Yea, I'm waiting to try the Sunset Wheat.
Plus, I stocked up on Berry Weiss last season, so I'm still drinking some! :cool:

also look for "sunset wheat" or year round? i hadn't heard about sunset wheat, sounds interesting though.

I was recently up at the store and didn't see Berry Weiss. I had to pick up some Big Butt Doppelbock though. Love that stuff!

it's good. if you go to one of the JImmy Buffet Margaritaville restaurants their house ale is brewed by Leinenkugel. I have not had it.

Berry has been out for about a month here in NW Indiana. Is Sunset Wheat ever going to make it over here?

Hello all, our distributor currently has Berry & Sunset. They are quite refreshing and enjoyable products. Dick and the gang have introduced a great wheat beer

Found some Sunset Wheat tonight. Definitely a different taste. Seems like it is a beer that a bottle every once-in-awhile would be okay, but it is not a multi-bottle drink.

we've got it on tap at our BW3's and i guess it's just creating quite the storm over there. doin some damage, the sunset wheat is.

you can go to the jimmy buffet margaritaville resaurants and get his house beer - it's a leinie "special ale"

does anyone know if the "leinie lodge" variety pack is a seasonal thing or year-round?

Are you talking about the Tackle Box? Around me it seems to come and go with some year round beers and some seasonal beers.

i believe they are permanent in its availability to distributors but generally we only bring them in certain times throughout the year.

either way, it's always been honey weiss, creamy dark, red and amber light. now that amber light is gone, maybe they will put sunset wheat in?

During the summer time I have seen Berry Weiss and in the late winter I have seen Big Butt in them too. I pick one of these packs up a few times a summer and make a Honey Bear :D
