The Not-Beer Trip

Most of the info is there in the blog post.

Basically I brought bottles that I purchased here in California and brought them to Germany to taste side by side with bottles I purchased there.

Exactly, it really boils down to exactly that. I don't want some American bullshit beer trying to say its German, I don't want some oxidized German beer. I want fresh German beer the way its supposed to taste, at my house at all times, end of story.

Absolutely. I was just glad to be able to say that the beer I have here is in fact different than the stuff I can drink in Germany. Nostalgia and perception can be finicky things, and I think this kind of pushes that to the side.

For what its worth Rothaus Pils, Peters Kolsch, and Paulaner Helles were the best beers I tried over there. It was a really different experience being able to drink it in its natural environment.

It's funny/Ironic that you chose Paulaner Helles as your quest beer. The helles we have in the paper, when brewed correctly, puts this beer to shame. Just an FYI 8-)

It angered me listening to the hosts of the brewing network insisting the only reason the beer in Germany seems to taste better is your happy and on vacation. I tasted plenty of micro's in California while I was happily visiting. How come that didn't make them any better?
The Germans must be putting hallucinogenics in the schnitzel.
