Europe Trip #4: Beer

No trip to Germany and Switzerland is complete without beer. Preferably, in an enormous stein, and preferably, a dunkel weisen (my favorite beer of all time!) Nathan and I certainly aren’t above drinking our way across beer heaven as shown:

Kulmbach
Kulmbach has it’s own brewery, and several locally made beers.

Munich:
The HofBrauhaus, of course! 

We spent the evening at a table with a large group of policemen from southern Germany that were traveling together on holiday. It was, like, the German dream… (They were very afraid of me once they realized I was a photographer, so please don’t tell on them to their boss.)

They even sang German drinking songs. IT. WAS. AWESOME. They made fun of me, though, because really, I am not much of a beer girl. I opted for red wine instead. I think Nathan is still ashamed of me for drinking wine at the HofBrauhaus.

Apparently beer making is so common in Munich that one can buy hops at the local market. Four Euros per bunch.

In Munich, we hung out one afternoon at a bar near the market, which had the most high tech tap I have ever seen. Something about this makes the experience less charming.



Interlaken, Switzerland:
Switzerland’s first pub, a tiny little place now filled with mostly tourists.

Prost! – HBA
