Summer 2016: Food and Beer in Germany Part 1 of 3

We made it back to Germany, and it was just as good – if not better – than our previous visit.

Below are some of our pics, including many of the beer-centric ones:

Lovely Würzburg.

The Residenz in Würzburg.

Visiting our lovely aunt Greta in northern Germany.

Berliner Weiße in Berlin.

Cool to see the emerging craft beer focus in Germany.

Wifey and Greta.

Our wonderful brother-in-law Christopher took us to Max Mundus, Würzburg’s first – and only – dedicated craft beer shop.

He bought a basket full of beers for beer tasting.

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

Following up on the previous Germany post, here are some additional beer and food pics from our trip there earlier this summer.

Continuing in Bamberg at Schlenkerla, the historic smoked beer brewery.

Thanks to wifey’s parents and her aunt for letting us stay at their beautiful homes and, along with wifey’s sister and family, for taking such great care of us.

Very grateful to have had this once-in-a-lifetime experience.


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.)
