I took a spin down through the Schwarzwald today … no, not on my bike this time. I drove through a few villages just for the experience. The first village I stopped in (really a small city) was Freudenstadt. This was a lovely town with a nice little brew house. I sampled both of their beers … an unfiltered Pilsener and a Hefeweizen. Both very nice brews (I had the small ones in case you are wondering … still had a little ways to drive). The brewery was the Turm Brau. Here a are a couple of photos of the brewery.
Yep … their Pilsener was my new beer for the day!
I then drove down through Alpirsbach … and visited a more well-known Kloster brewery. I actually saw the old brew house, but I took the tour of the Kloster. I will try to post more pictures of it later, but here’s a couple of the old brew house and the Kloster’s new Pipe Organ. It was beautiful…
Oh, here’s what I bought while down there. (Don’t worry honey, I’m drinking it all here and not bringing any more home!)
