Connecting the Troopers of Today with the Veterans of Yesterday.

Thought I might start a list of flavor experiences I've encountered recently, in the realm of German biers. I've discovered a treasure trove of some 600+ imported biers, and am prepared to squander the family fortune in persuit of the perfect bier.

As this could prove a daunting task, I am starting at the top so momentum will assist me.

My first offering is:
KOSTRIZER SCHWARZBIER, Germany's black lager, brewed by Kostrizer Schwarzbier Brauerei, Bad Kostritz/Thuringen.

Hope you have patience and a steady hand to pour this one, because it's got a helluva head on it. I seem to remember a question on the Army entrance exam's about pouring bier down the side of the glass. This is definitely the bier that requires this technique if you don't want an entire glass of foam. As far as taste....too heavy for my liking. Reminded me of a mouthful of burnt wood.

Heading back to the bier garden this afternoon.

Of course you are. How can you resist?

Back in the Day, I drank Reichelbrau. Now I drink Sam Adams. Good stuff!

Or for guys like Gene that REALLY like Reichelbrau, a two-fisted mug!

I always preferred Hans Falk Weizen Bier when I could get it.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
