Although I am in Norway, there are some Austrians here with us. I had the pleasure of hanging out with one of them today … and he had brought a few different beers with him … and some home made Schnapps. The Schnapps he brought is called “Obstler” — which means it is a mix of fruit … in this instance Apple and Pear.
Wow! This stuff was good — it set me up nicely to follow it with a good Austrian Beer: Schwechater. They’ve been making beer for 350 years — not real old, but old enough! This is a very nice beer … I’m looking forward to visiting Vienna in April and sampling a few more Austrian brews.
