Almost as much fun to say as it is to drink, the name “Farfignuggan” comes from the German farfig, "to love beer," and nuggan, "out of your noggin," and roughly translates, “out of your mind with love for beer.” And with this thought in mind, one sip of this traditional copper-colored dark German wheat beer (dunkel-weizen) will transport you to the sunshine of a Bavarian biergarten, where you’ll be chomping pretzels, clanking weizen glasses, and reveling in this creamy, wheaty classic, with its fragrant abundance of clove, bananas and bread crust, which initiates the taste buds to the soft, rich wheat flavors accented with bubbly and fruity spiciness. Historically, dunkelweizens were consumed for their health-giving attributes, but today, we drink them for our deep-rooted love for beer! Prost!
