Yeah I know I said we start our mission on first of April. So we cheated a bit, we had to. When relocating a whole family, there are a few things you have to take care of. First you need an apartment. So Paula and I went to Bayreuth last week to secure us a place to live in (more about this in First Impressions). During that time I was sick (I had bronchitis and inflamed sinuses), so I was really careful of what I eat and drink. Therefore it appeared as though I would not get to try any beers. Thankfully I was wrong.
Obviously soccer is a big thing in Germany. So our first week in Bayreuth, while staying at the house of Paula host professor, I was invited to a soccer game between FC Bayern and Arsenal (a return match). Even in Slovenia it is customary to bring something to a soccer game (chips or drinks), so I decided to bring a beer from a closest brewery next to our apartment. Because I didn`t have a fridge the beers I brought weren`t cold. But the host was prepared. And I didn`t have the nerves to decline an offered beer (I was afraid it would cause an international incident 🙂 ).
So my first beer in Bayreuth was Zwickl, brewed in Bayreuth.
The first taste I had scared me because I thought I already found it – the best beer in Germany (maybe it was just the effect of relief that I didn`t hate it – we shall see in time). Zwickl is a dark (dunkel) beer that is extremely drinkable. It has enough caramel taste with creamy texture that makes it a keeper. So, yeah I recommend Zwickl to anyone who can get their hands on it. I sure am going to try it a couple more times (already did – but hush, don`t tell anyone).
Po opisu piva so se mi začele cediti sline. Kar začutila sem, kako se mi je po grlu razlilo kremasto in hladno pivo. Oh, kako se veselim, da bom z ga. dr. poslušala Musik mit Gefühl in s tabo, dragi kolega, praznila steklenice.
Carsko. Zmenjeno za vse. 🙂
