Zauber Brewing Company, Columbus, OH

I stopped in at Zauber Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio and enjoyed their Vertigo Hefeweizen.  Although this is not my go-to style, it was recommended by  the bartender and I really enjoyed their beer.  I definitely get the spice flavors – clove, etc – in the beer.  I stopped with one so vertigo was no problem for me 😉

I stopped in at The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery in Charlotte, North Carolina.  The atmosphere is German bierhall and biergarten.  It’s a great place.  I tried a flight of beers.  The Fat Boy Baltic Porter was just as I had hoped.  Smooth, malty, caramelly. The Copper Amber Ale is a great mix of malty smoothness and a little bite.  I was pleasantly surprised with the Hornet’s Nest Hefeweizen.  This was crisp and enjoyable.  Finally, the Radler, a mix of Captain Jack Pilsner and Sprite (lemon soda) reminded me of the Radler I had in Munich decades ago.  Delicious!
