|Beer for two in Munich|
|A Liter at the famous Hofbauhaus|
But here's the thing about wine in central Europe. First off, white wine is served only slightly chilled. And secondly, California style wine doesn't exist. The wine tends to be either quite sweet, or Rhine style from the Rhine River Valley, or it's crisp as in French style wine. To me, crisp is sharp and grassy, which I just do not prefer.
So what's a girl to do when on the road in Europe? In a word; beer. Beer in central Europe is fantastic. It comes in so many flavors and styles, and all on tap. It is rich, deep and many are somewhat creamy in flavor. YUM! It is beyond recognition from the bottled varieties in the store at home. My favorite was the Bavarian style dunkle lager (or dark lager) which we had while in Munich. And the best part of beer is it comes stone cold, and on a hot day what is better than that? I think the least amount of photos we took at any location along our trip was Munich (our photos over on Pinterest). Not sure why exactly. Perhaps too busy sampling beer? Could be.
