Don’t Look Back at Kloster Kreuzberg

It had been nearly 20 years since our first visit to Kloster Kreuzberg. Expectations are funny things when it comes to experiencing beery pilgrimage sites and this exercise proved no different.

Schederndorfer Helles Sommerbier

Schederndorfer Helles Sommerbier has butterscotch in both the nose and palate some hops creep in for the finish but not sure they entirely save the day.

Drei Kronen Festbier

Drei Kronen Festbier is unsurprisingly malty brew with just enough hops to dry it nicely in the finish.

Trunk Nothelfer Erntebier

Trunk Nothelfer Erntebier is the brewery's autumn entry with a deep golden hue and rich malty palate.

Sometimes enjoying nature means having to become part of the food chain

Sonnen-Bräu is a great reason to make your way to Mürsbach but it´s not the only one. The pretty valley features pretty trails and lots of beery options.

You can’t tell the dorfs without a scorecard

The Dorf Breweries Express is an easy 9km hike in Franconia Switzerland which takes in five small regional breweries. Join Beer Hiking Bavaria author Rich Carbonara to find the best beers and foods along the way.

Sonnen-Bräu Lager

Sonnen-Bräu Lager is surprisingly hoppy unfiltered Helles with lingering semi-dry finish.

Göller Gaumenkitzler

Göller Gaumenkitzler is a top-fermented Rotbier with a fruity nose and palate.

Göller Lager Hell

Göller Lager is lightly grainy hoppy session beer with a clean semi-dry, semi-bitter finish.
