“A beer in a tree.” Actually, she’s given me more than that … she was completely supportive of my coming here to work so that I could have this experience. Wow. My advice to you — when you get a good one, keep her/him (You can’t have mine.)
Now, on to beer… today I had disappointment and then pleasure. I went to tour the Dinkelacker brewery … unfortunately, it wasn’t open.
However, the restaurant “Brauerei-Gaststätte Dinkelacker Piorkowski” was open — they are right by the brewery. Normally, on Sundays they are closed … but today… yes! Open! So, I went in, sat at the bar (see pictures) and had a Maerzen Bier. I was very happy with the flavor of this beer … and it went very well with my “Wild Venison Goulash and Spaetzle.” Wow. The overhead for the bar was the top of a large mash (or lauter) tun. I took a picture of the outside and thee inside. You can see the sliding door where they could access the grain, etc.
Very cool. Nice day for the Beer Mentor.
