Trumer Pils: When Not in Germany

It's been over three years since I've been able to get back to Germany, so let's take a look at a micro beer that comes close to the real thing.

Introducing Trumer Pils, a small brewery in Berkeley (of all places) that is based on an Austrian recipe,

I've been buying Trumer Pils at the local Bevmo, and I think it's an excellent American beer. It has a nice smooth taste that reminds you of a European beer-not watery.

I still maintain that the only place in the US with authentic German beer is the Hofbrauhaus in Las Vegas. That's because the kegs are shipped directly to Las Vegas from the HB in Munich with no pasteurization etc.

If you are not in Germany or Las Vegas, however, you have to look for alternatives like Trumer Pils.
