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.

Hoh Lagerbier

Brauerei Hoh's Lagerbier is a dry low carbonation session beer with just enough bitterness to make it moreish.

Hummel Pils

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

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.

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.

Hummel Märzen

Hummel Märzen is an excellent dryish Märzen with a balanced palate and semi-bitter finish.

Binkert Porter on tap

Binkert's Porter is a good interpretation of an American Craft Beer Porter with nice mix of hops and roast and a dryish moreish finish.
