    Pros: Good mouthfeel, satisfying and refreshing brew.
    Cons: None come to mind.

    Summary: As a beer enthusiast, I find myself drinking beer in brewpubs throughout the country and appreciating the fine brews they offer. I love the chocolatey stouts, the malty bocks, the hoppy India Pale Ales, the yeasty Belgian triples, the smoky rauchbiers….I ... read more

  • Henry Weinhard's Blackberry Wheat...the best beer ever brewed!

    Jul 19, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Not sweet like a lot of other "fruit" beers (writing about Blackberry Wheat)
    Cons: Can only find it in the Pacific Northwest!

    Summary: I'd like to reiterate that I'm writing about HW's Blackberry Wheat beer, not the Lager, although I think the Lager is very good, but it is nothing compared to the later. This beer is very similar in flavor to the Private Reserve...a fairly ... read more

  • Training Beer Graduate! Henry Weinhard's Lager

    Mar 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great step up for those used to flavorless American lagers like Budweiser.
    Cons: I'm now expected to branch further from training beer territory.

    Summary: Beer snobbery is alive and well in the green forests of the Pacific Northwest. When I moved here from Ohio, my coworkers liked to make fun of my love of Budweiser, Bud Light, and Hudy Delight (yes, that's a real beer!). They ... read more

  • Best Value on the Market

    Jul 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Value
    Cons: Too dark for some

    Summary: The one sure thing about Henry Weinhardt's Private reserve is that it is the best beer for its price. At about $7.99 a twelve pack(only in bottles), it rivals Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, and other even more expensive imports. This makes it a great beer to ... read more

    Summary: Henery Weinheart has some good flavors some bad, the first time I ever tried it was on summer when I went up north for a camping trip with one of my buddies. We bought three 12 packs of this stuff one was a Pale ale one was a ice ale the last was a ... read more

  • Private Reserve is Not Exactly Reserved For Private Parties

    Pros: Better than macros, good taste, great price
    Cons: It's no microbrew!!

    Summary: Henry Weinhardt's is a very old brewery in Oregon which started out as a microbrewery in the 19th century, but which has since become an extremely large, extremely distributed macrobrew. The brewery distributes a number of beers which attempt to rival ... read more

  • Cheap Beer Tasteoff: Weinhard's Pale Ale vs. Bud Light

    Jun 14, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: More flavor than American lagers
    Cons: Bitter and skunky

    Summary: Note: The beer reviewed here is Henry Weinhard's Blue Boar Pale Ale, not Henry Weinhard's Lager. Both Henry Weinhard's Blue Boar Pale Ale and Bud Light are inexpensive, generally available for about $8.50 per 12-pack, $6.50 when on sale. Both ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliable, tasty
    Cons: doesn't stand out

    Summary: When I have to buy a beer, and I don't have anything special in mind (Redhook, Alaska, etc), Henry's is what I turn to. All of their varied options are good and tasty, but I'll stick to the Private Reserve. Bring it on. This is my beer, and ... read more

  • The Test of Maturity

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive. Stands the test of my maturity. Better than almost any macro brew.
    Cons: Not quite spectacular.

    Summary: I'm happy to say that Henry's is the only beer to survive the test of maturity. That is: Undergrad I guess we were beer snobs. We didn't often pick up a case of Keystone, and really only had terrible beer when we spent some ... read more

    Pros: Wonderful Honey Wheat Full Flavored beer
    Cons: Hard to find seasonal beer

    Summary: This beer is available at Raley's Markets in Oakhurst below Yosemite National park. Ask your local Markets and Liquor stores for it. I was able to purchase 12 bottles for $6.00, with a coupon! What a steal! God must like me. This stuff is great! ... read more

    Cons: Hard to find

    Summary: Here in Oregon, We have some of the cleanest water on the planet. Water is the main ingredient of beer. Next time you are near a Budweiser factory, STOP, Get out of your car, And look at the filthy creek they make the beer with. no wonder it tastes ... read more

    Summary: This beer is the best tasting beer that we've ever had. We haven't lived in the Pacific Northwest for many years, but every time we go, we fill our trunk up with Henry's Ale to bring home with us. It is a smooth ale that goes well with everything. We ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap price for a premium tasting beer
    Cons: Not in every liquor store

    Summary: Henry Weinhardt's makes quite a few varieties of beers, not necessarily only a lager. The beer most commonly comes in form of a twelve pack, which at $7.99 is not a bad deal. The taste is very much premium indeed. My personal favorites are ... read more

    Pros: Light and flexible without being weak
    Cons: a little sweet for die-hard stout drinkers

    Pros: Lower cost.
    Competitive quality.
    Excellent value.
    Cons: The only cons are the other Henry's beers. 'Nuff said.

    Summary: Ok - I've been drinking what I consider "Good" beer for many years.  The reason "beer snobbery is alive and well in the Pacific Northwest" is that we've been spoiled by yummy microbrews for so long that we can't fathom why anyone would want to drink ... read more

    Pros: Tastes good, inexpensive
    Cons: Not as strong flavored as many of the micros.

    Summary: Henry's is the best beer, day in and day out. Micros are nice from time to time, but you can't drink the same one on a regular basis. Henry's is truly a Northwest asset. When you just want a good beer, grab a Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve. By the ... read more
