    During a promotion for BLBFIT at Lucky Lou’s in Denton last week, I had the pleasure to try the “Keep the Pint Night” beer for that week. I love Hefeweizens, think it has to do with my German heritage, or just the fact the Hefeweizes are cloudy cups of fruity goodness, either way, I wasn’t going home without trying that Hefe.

    I hadn’t heard of Pedernales until that night and to my surprise, it now ranks list of top Hefeweizens. Their German-style brew was a light, refreshing, golden ale with the right amount of cloudy in my pint glass. The tones of banana and apricot tickled my tongue as I enjoyed this masterful recipe. No wonder it has received seven medals; three being gold at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO. Every drop of that delightful Hefe deserves a pat on the back for being pretty much a perfect. A hug, too.

    Needless to say, now I’m seeking out Pedernales brews so I can try them all. There is a complete list on their website ( but here is a short list in our area. Carrollton: Albertson’s on Josey Lane, Twister Root Burger Co. on Main, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop on Midway. Albertson’s in Corinth. Denton: Albertson’s on University, Kroger on Loop 288, Metzler’s F&B on Londonderry, Misway mart on Hickory, 4 Quicktrips in town and the Sac N Save off 35, North bound. Flower Mound: Kroger on Flower Mound Rd, FM Beer, Wine & Gas on Cross Timbers and Whip In on Morris. Lewisville: Albertons’ on Main, 3 Quicktrips in town and T’s Bar & Grill on 121. They are everywhere!

    Other brews available by Pedernales are Lobo Lito, a Premium Texas Pilsner; Lobo, 1910 Pre-Prohibition American lager; Lobo Negro, a dark lager; and Pedernales Classic (orange label,) an English-style IPA.

    The only bad thing about this brewery, at least for me, is that it’s so far away! A trip is in my future to visit Fredericksburg to try many different wines, and now I have even more reason to go. The Brewhouse is open Fridays from 3pm – 5pm and Saturdays 1pm-5pm. If you are going to that side of the state, be sure to visit the tasting room and take a tour. From the pictures on their website, it looks magical.

    Be glad you are in TX. We are in Seoul, Korea and miss our Lobo beer almost as much as family. The Hefe was as good as what we used to drink in Germany. Amazing beer!!
