Why is Schofferhofer Grapefruit Bier a better option than a regular beer?
I am not a huge fan of grapefruit but for whatever reason, this one hits...and it hits well. On a hot day, nothing quenches the thirst like an ice cold Sheffy. The grapefruit is perfect for satisfying the thirst and you feel like you are drinking something far more exotic than a simple beer.
The notes are not overpowering and it isn't sweet and sugary. The grapefruit is front and center but in a mild way that doesn't make you feel you are drinking a syrupy drink like some beers come away with when they try and add too much syrup to make a flavor.
Yes this is one of the few things you can take from Disney World and experience and enjoy at home.
Schofferhofer Grapefruit Bier is available at many grocery stores and in some cases wine and liquor stores so keep an eye out for it in the beer coolers at grocery stores. Some will sell full 12 packs while others may only sell four packs of 20-ounce sizes.
There are also more flavors than just grapefruit. In addition to grapefruit, there is also Passion Fruit, Pomegranate, Wild Cherry, and a new Watermelon Mint that is absolutely wonderful. Sadly, you can't get these at any Disney World park and not all grocery stores have them.
I was able to find, well my wife was able to find a case at an Orlando Publix grocery store and we stocked up and brought them home with us. The watermelon only comes in packs of four and not in a variety pack.
While all the other flavors are good they don't really compare to the grapefruit which stands out as not only the original, but still the best refreshing "bier" you can get at any Disney World park!
