Schöfferhofer Grapefruit – May Beer of the Month

Frankfurt, Germany

Schöfferhofer is a brand of German wheat beer named for the former house of Peter Schöffer (the house was called the Mainzer Schöfferhof) in which a brewery was founded. The Schöfferhofer brand originates from this brewery in Mainz, which is also known as the Brauerei Dreikönigshof.

Schöfferhofer is the first of its kind. Often regarded as the champagne among wheat beers, Schöfferhofer was the first wheat beer brewed outside of Bavaria. It has an elegant, refreshing, and vibrant taste.

An innovative addition to the brand is Schöfferhofer Grapefruit. Schöfferhofer Grapefruit is the world’s first Hefeweizen (wheat beer) grapefruit beer. Best served cold, it’s the perfect casual brew to cool you off during the summer. The low alcohol makes it an easy-going drink for any time of the day and is also enjoyable all year round. Brewed at the Binding Brauerei in Frankfurt, Schofferhoffer Grapefruit is a true blend of 50% Hefeweizen and 50% carbonated natural grapefruit juice.

Zesty, tangy and refreshing, this Hefeweizen blend is also a bartender favorite for fresh new cocktails based around the brew. Ask your bartender for a Paloma Alemán – a tasty twist to a margarita!
