Hönig's Postillon Weiße is a refreshing classic Wießbier, perfect for a post-hike Bierkeller visit.

Brauhaus am Kreuzberg Imperial Baltic Porter

Brauhaus am Kreuzbreg Imperial Baltic Porter looks promising with its dark black hue and tan head but in the end, you are left with rum & coke.

Brauhaus am Kreuzbreg Zwickel, at least on this particular tasting, was possibly spoiled. It was sour with a yeasty nose.
