Saint Arnold Weedwacker in Bottles

HOUSTON - Part of its recent Moveable Yeast series of experimental beers, Saint Arnold's Weedwacker has proven so popular that it will be bottled as a year-round offering.

The Weedwacker is a version of Saint Arnold's Fancy Lawnmower k├Âlsch fermented with a Bavarian hefeweizen yeast strain. It will take the place of the retiring Texas Wheat in the brewery's current lineup.
