Twisted Beer Crawl


Last Friday night my wife and I were hanging out with some of the neighbors and one of mentioned (after a few beers, of course) having a pub crawl in the neighborhood where we all buy unusual brands of beer and we go from house to house to sample all the different types of beers. I think it will be a blast. Can you imagine this on Mayfield Place? Art would either buy the cheapest beer he could find or no beer at all and just sponge off the neighbors. Ray would probably buy some nice microbrewery product.

Hey Ray Peterson and Art, what is a good German or English beer that might be available in the states? Anybody else have suggestions?

By the way, I live on Twisted Leaf Drive, hence the name.

Re: Twisted Beer Crawl


I've once read that the most popular beer (in Germany) is the "Krombacher" beer. People also like "Bitburger", "Becks", "Warsteiner" and "Veltins".

I guess the Top 3 would be:

1.) Krombacher
2.) Bitburger
3.) Warsteiner

But tastes differ. However, if you can find a Krombacher somewehere out there, try it.

Re: Twisted Beer Crawl


That's an awesome idea Mayfield! Let us know how it goes.

There's a place in town here we love to go and have a few hundred beers, it's call The Public House and you can get beers from around the world. Awesome place, good time.

oh yeah Mayfield, be sure to crush your beer cans when go from house to house.

ROFL, I will be sure to do that LOL.

I will let you know how it goes.

Ray P. - I actually found and bought Warsteiner. Thanks for the recommendation.

Eine Königin unter den Bieren.

I know what the individual words mean but it I can't make sense of it. Is that an idiom?

Re: Twisted Beer Crawl


Okay, I like my beers. Nothing interferes with my beer. LOL.

I do not like the English real ales though, of which we seem to be very famous for. I used to drink cider, years back. But that's a passed phase.

Now, I like crisp, chilled (to the point of ice crystals forming) - lager - GERMAN. Okay, not anything else but German. We have a culture here of people drinking anything and anything. That's bad...

But I'm a discerning German lager drinker. I have to say that I was influenced extremely strongly when I went to Koblenz, Heidelberg, Cochem, Rudesheim and St Goarshausen. I drank Bitburger and Krombacher constantly.

When I got back home I actually persuaded my local beer dealer to get some German lagers in stock. Which he did. Bless him. Krombacher and Bitburger, when properly chilled, are fantastic beers. I can be persuaded to drink Becks and Leffe. (And purely because of the film ICE COLD IN ALEX I will drink Carlsberg Export). But...

For me the Holy Grail of lagers is......

Lowenbrau Oktoberfest. Oh my God. When I graduated we went camping and took 3 boxes of this beer and whacked the lot. Man it was good.

Lager-wise from Britain? Australia? Holland? forget it. It's crap. Do not buy Carling, Harp, Skol, Carlsberg, and as for Stella Artois it gives me headaches. Kronenbourg 1664 is quite nice...

Does this help?

Let us not forget the contributions to music of Herrn Beethoven, Mozart, Straus, Bach, Handel, Brahms (not all German but of the German Sprachraum) to name just a few. Not an insignificant body of works.
