Draft Beer Changes
Kegs of Franziskaner Hefeweizen continue to turn over. Maybe because it's Irish Bobby's favorite beer and he's in town for the week.
Paulaner Oktoberfest replaced Paulaner Weiss'n. This Paulaner is the old school recipe. And it's from Munich, the birthplace of Oktoberfest.
Warsteiner Pils replaced Spaten Premium. Warstein is a village in Germany between Dortmund and Kassel. The brewery dates from 1753, which makes a little younger than our building. This beer may be the closest thing Germany has to a national brand.
Ramstein Blonde is a hefeweizen from a North Jersey microbrewery that specializes in German style beers. This one is their flagship.
Long Trail Ale is an alt style beer from Vermont. Alt is style of copper ale that originated in Dusseldorf.
Ballast Point Oktoberfest is a festbier from San Diego California. Chez says this is one the best festbiers he's ever had. It indeed is a great dark tasty beer.
I asked our sous chef Kevin about the Hot Tots listed on our special board. He was very excited about them. Hot Tots are balls of mashed potato, wurst, and cheese that are breaded and fried. It's as delicious as it sounds.
