    Oktoberfest may be cancelled due to COVID-19, but...

    ...Oktoberfestmärzen refuses to be cancelled!



    This one is Augustiner's, running in at 6.3%ABV.

    Prost!

    Covid has got me missing my frequent trips to Germany. Normally fly into Stuttgart and rehearse near Geislingen, all I've wanted during Lockdown has been the Kaiser-Brau from the local brewery, which is impossible to get over here. I've had to settle for Paulaner which is good, but no substitute.

    Source schneider weiBe its usually reasonably findable in the uk, tap 6 is my favourite.

    I will likely celebrate oktoberfest similarly this year, sat in the house under a pointless lockdown...

    I've actually moved away from Wiesse, I'm not really sure why. I used to be a lot more keen on it but recently a decent Hell is what I'm after. What I lkve most about touring in Germany is that each town gives you the local brew, so it becomes as much about trying new beer as gigging. Although obviously later in the night it all just becomes 'another beer'.

    They don't f*ck about with names there, the angrier sounding the better. Even the German word for Butterfly sounds like an angry insult or a surgical instrument.

    D'you mean this?



    There are so many breweries in Germany, they ran out of names. "Kaiser Bräu" is by Nuremburg, so Google tells me you must mean Kaiser Brauerei GmbH of Geislingen an der Steige. Of course it sounds pedantic! This is Germany! (I can talk: I'm more pedantic than anyone! That pays for my beer and guitars! )



    I've somehow taken a dislike to Paulaner, if I can get my paws on what you like to drink, I can perhaps advise on a more readily available substitute. Or, if you're really serious, you could likely get a "man with a van" to bring you a crate or several...

    Since the advent of craft beer, that probably exists, somewhere.

    My mate just sent me a pic of him drinking this:


    It's but I want it!

    I've had a few blueberry pastry stouts as daft as thst May sound. They tend to get a bit syrupy unless they are milk stouts but at tge right time verily tasty. If you like fancy desert stouts this place is hard to beat:


    Very pricey though
