A seemingly little known fact about TJ’s is their line of house beers, sold under the label of Josephsbrau. They cover a number of styles and are generally priced for about $1/bottle. So I stopped by my local TJ’s and picked up one each of their current offerings (which varies by season and store). $6 got me a bottle of Oatmeal Stout, Pilsner, Hefeweizen, Red Ale and Summer Lager, including tax. Here’s what I thought about the brews.

Oh Trader Joe's, the mecca for upper-middle class citizens looking for off-brand, high quality edible products. While I had never shopped here before, I knew many people who seemingly lived and died by the products available at the Californian retailer. And honestly, I wouldn't ever have thought to visit Trader Joe's and evaluate its beer offerings until I read this. Intrigued by Trader Joe's surprisingly deep roster of in-house brew, I decided to stop by and see what the fuss was about.
Battle of the Beers – June Reviews
Another month is in the books and 2017 is flying by. I reviewed a total of 15 brews in the month of June! These rankings highlight my thoughts of each beer from worst to first and are purely my opinion. You may not agree, and that's completely fine!

Beer Review – Paulaner Hefe-Weizen
In 2016, Paulaner produced 1 million hectoliters (thats 26,417,205.2 gallons) of beer which is consumed in over80 countries. This translates to 211,337,641.6 pints of Paulaner consumed in one calendar year, which is fairly impressive in my eyes.
