Summer 2012: Beer and Food Pics from Germany Part 1 of 2

We recently returned from a family trip to Germany.

We visited beer cities like Munich and Bamberg, and I had my fair share of locally made pilsners, hefeweizens, dunkel weizens, and rauchbiers.

Below are many of the beer and food pics:

Hop fields en route to Munich.

Munich’s Hofbräuhaus.

Cheers from Augustiner!

The beautiful weekend house.

Beginning the day in Bamberg with Leberkäse.

Mahr’s Bräu.

Brauerei Keesmann.

Everything about this trip was memorable and just about perfect, and from a beer-related standpoint, it was wonderful to learn about – and soak in – the German beer culture where basically beer is no big deal and, overall, just a normal part of life. (Part 2 here.)
