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.

Schlenkerla Rauchbier. You can find it in the old part of Bamberg. Go through the Rathaus and turn right. I had it there a few years ago and now have a refrigerator full of it, thanks to a son living in Germany. Come on by and have one. Hell, I think I'll have one RIGHT NOW!
I found a store right here in Tacoma where I can get all these and many more anytime I want. They have over 600 brands.

I have a Erdinger weissbier in the fridge I think I will drink.

Like this, Shannon?

Or more like this?

Then again, you can go all-out for the Dunkel on the end!

I will have the dunkel thank you very much.

Good choice!

That be the one

I think I found German Bier heaven in downtown Sacramento look at all those Bier's available on tap. I'm there.


Oh hell yeah!!!

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.
