Every year at the local Oktoberfest I drink a few too many Hofbrau Originals. It’s the “house” beer of the festival and its flowing from the taps all weekend long. I build such an appreciation for the beer over that weekend that my excitement builds when I come up with the idea of picking up a 6 at the local craft brew store last week. Crack the first one open when I get home and it smells like a skunk sprayed in my kitchen.
Why do quality German beers continue to put their beers in green bottles? There aren’t many places around that I can get a good helles on tap so I have to resort to imported beers that never even stood a chance to meet the quality I expect.
