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.
Brauerei Hoh's Lagerbier is a dry low carbonation session beer with just enough bitterness to make it moreish.
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 is unsurprisingly malty brew with just enough hops to dry it nicely in the finish.
Hummel Pils is a dry balanced example of the style with a touch of grain before the clean, semi-dry, slightly bitter finish.
Hummel Spezial falls into the Märzen style with a deep amber hue and richly malty palate with some toasted elements before the semi-dry finish.
Göller Urstoff is a malty session beer, more in the Kellerbier direction and a true Dunkles.
Trunk Nothelfer Erntebier is the brewery's autumn entry with a deep golden hue and rich malty palate.
Bayer Maibock is a great dry, Hellerbock with some apricot in the nose and palate and a long dry, slightly bitter finish.
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.
