Erlangen Beerfest Coming

The Erlangen Bergkirchweih is approaching. Bavaria's second biggest beer fest will run from May 21-June 1.

If you are anywhere near Erlangen, which is about 15 miles north of Nuremberg, you owe it to yourself to visit the Bergkirchweih.

Bergisches Landbier

A friend of mine who is married to a German guy just got back from a visit to Germany, and knowing I collect German beer glasses, brought me this one.

I had never heard of this beer, so I did a little checking.

The brewery is from Wiehl-Bielstein, which is in the Ruhr Gebiet.

Naturally, I have no idea what it tastes like, and I place no stock in those snooty taster descriptions.
