wanna hear a fun beer fact?

The other night, I was talking to my cousin, Bubba, who goes to Berkley.  He asked me if I’d ever seen, heard of, or tasted Trumer Pils beer.  I told him, “Duh, it’s from Salzburg.”  He then informed me that while, at one point, the beer was sold almost exclusively in Salzburg, the 400 year-old company recently opened a brewery in Berkley.  Now, the beer is available throughout the country of Austria and the San Francisco Bay area, as well as select cities across the U.S. (Seattle, Portland, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, Phoenix and San Diego). 

I know next to nothing about beer; I can’t tell an ale from a lager and words like ‘hops’ and ‘wort’ mean nothing to me.  This probably has to do with the fact that the taste of beer may or may not repulse me (though beer bread is one of my top five favorite foods of all time). 

But I do know how to properly pronounce words like ‘weissbier’, ‘weizenbier’ and ‘hefeweizen’!  That counts for something, right?

Anyway, that’s your beer fact for the day.  Another fact?  If you tell me any type of anecdote about the city of Salzburg, chances are it will make its way onto this blog at one point or another.

On that note….prost!  Here’s to a fun and productive weekend.

Ah, Trumer Pils. I remember a night when I might have had a few too many Trumer Pils at Republic and I "came to" walking down Getreidegasse as the sun was coming up, then caught the 3 home.....good memories!

I'm in the same boat as you, Girl. I don't know a lot about the different kinds. My hubs on the other hand...knows tons. When we lived in Germany for 3 years he became quite the beer connoisseur. His favorite was Schofferhofer.
I sooo miss living there.

Anyways... I am your newest follower! Found you through Breanna's giveaway post. Looking forward to reading more from you!
