Temple / Weihenstephan Der Handschlag

Temple Brewing

Released July 11th, 2014

During May's Good Beer Week in Melbourne, Frank Piefer, head brewers of the world's oldest established brewery, Weihennstephan in Germany, visited Temple to create their second collaboration beer. The brew day, to which members of the public were invited, ended up being a mammoth session with brewers there late in the night thanks to opting for the sort of heavy duty grain bill that brewhouses don't take to fondly. In the mix was heaps of wheat, some rye malt and a touch of smoked malt too, with the resultant beer, Der Handschlag (The Handshake), a deep amber, full-bodied drop. There's a hint of smoke and a touch of spiciness, while there's no mistaking the distinct banana and clove characteristics of the Weihenstephan yeast. The brewers used Galaxy and Southern Cross to add a touch of the tropical to a beer crying out to be paired with some hearty pork dishes.
