I'll be in Germany next week, travelling around Franconia. I'm looking forward to drinking some Franconian smoked and unfiltered lagers in the pubs of Bamberg and Forchheim.
I've drunk the smoked Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen in bottles. Unlike most people apparently, I loved it immediately. I'm hoping for a similar experience when it's served by gravity from a wooden barrel as my first glass of Schumacher Alt in Düsseldorf and first Maß of Augustiner Edelstoff in their idyllic Munich beer garden.
Bis später dann!
