Beer God’s Notes
This is apparently a once-and-done offering. I don’t know if they will actually do that because this was really tasty. Doing a collaboration with a German brewery REALLY amped the authenticity in this beer. I could really taste the tradition in this beer.
We’ve partnered with Mahrs Bräu, one of Germany’s most highly regarded brewers, to create a golden-hued festival beer right here in the USA. Using traditional techniques, heritage German barley, and the Record hop varietal—a nearly forgotten German-grown hop—we’ve created the most authentic take on the style this side of the Atlantic.
