Brewer’s Advent Calendar 2017: Day Five

Today’s beer: Altbayrisch Dunkel

This one is really fun since Dunkel isn’t a style many craft brewers produce AND it’s the perfect dark lager for a rainy, cold night in Georgia.

(To tell the truth it’s not as cold outside as it could/should be, but if the beer is cellar temperature to match the outdoors, that’s fine by me.)

I really enjoyed this one – both the style and this particular example1 – as they seem like a nice match for my expectations of what I’d be drinking in a German beer Advent calendar.

Whatever that means.

Happy Repeal of Prohibition Day!

  1. It’s kind of like the German Lager equivalent to a plain Porter
