752. Krombacher Gruppe – Krombacher Dark

I’m still at the Beer House Chicago since I’m staying a across the street while I’m up in the Chicago suburbs for work. As I mentioned in my last post, there was a sales girl here giving away glasses if you have both Keombacher Pils and this Dark. It’s kind of a cool glass and it’s somewhat cheap, so I figured why not. Location: On tap and served in a Krombacher Pilsner glass at Beer House Chicago in...

I looked into the beer fridge and thought I’d dig around a little bit. I found a mixed six pack of beers I picked up on a work trip to New Orleans several months ago. This one looked most interesting, so I thought I’d give it a try. The bottle says, “Inspired by old world brewing methods, this bewitching all malt brew is a darkly rich, exotic lager, crafted with a touch of magical New Orleans spirit.”...

As I mentiond in my last post, we’re in Miami, and on the way to the airport, we found Fritz and Franz Bierhaus in Coral Gables. The menu was full of German and Austrian food and I ordered a schnitzel sandwich accompanied by a K√∂stritzer Schwarzbier.
