Here’s a last minute plan for tomorrow night: a nine course beer tasting paired with a German dinner at Lorely Williamsburg from 7-10:30pm.
Rudi Eilers, a German beer expert, will introduce 9 different beers from Germany (list below) and discuss each beer’s origin, brewing method (top vs. bottom fermented) and unique flavors.
Beers that will be tasted:
1. Gaffel Kölsch – top fermented ale with a fresh taste from Cologne
2. Jever Pilsner – a wonderful pilsner with a strong bite
3. Spaten Lager – traditional aromatic Munich lager (aka Helles)
4. Spaten Ur-Maerzen – amber colored Maerzen, perfectly balanced with a touch of underlying sweetness
5. Weihenstephan – Hefeweizen from the world’s oldest brewery
6. Erdinger Dark – a full-flavored, refreshingly mellow wheat beer made from darkly roasted malt
7. Köstritzer Schwarzbier – the most popular dark beer in Germany, surprisingly light and fresh
8. HB Strong Bock – a bottom fermented light bock with powerful aromatic flavors
9. Einbecker Winter-Bock – a deep amber red beer with malty sweetness balanced by a hoppy bitter finish
