Currently enjoying a straggler from the Christmas beer selection. An Imperial Stout from Pohjala in Estonia. Winter Banger is described as inspired by British Christmas Cake and aged on brandy-soaked raisins. At 12.5% it’s a wonderfully indulgent beer to sip on a chilly winter’s evening:

Out doing stuff today, stopped at La Reforma and shared a flight - mexican red chile chocolate stout, hazy IPA, dark lager and in the back a scottish ale....good little brewery....got a little growler of their new west coast IPA for later.

Later on at home, Mrs D wanted a dark malty beer, so I opened a can of La Cumbre "Gilded Age" porter (5.7% abc, 35 ibu)...she got the big glass and I took the last few ounces.

Now, a can of Ex Novo "Eliot" IPA (6.6% abv, 65 ibu)

Munich trip underway. First stop was the Schneider Brauhaus on a crazy-busy evening.
Tap 5 Hopfenweisse was our choice to compliment the menu options:

At 8.2% it’s a strong option but surprisingly light and drinkable for a bock beer:
Been there. (y)

Schnieder's may be the best beer in the entire world. Love the Aventinus. Couple of those will make you blissed out.

On day 2 we dropped in at Tap-House, a smaller, independent establishment run in partnership with Camba Bavaria Brewery. They offer a huge range of beers, including 40 on tap!

After some deliberation we settled on their own daily special, a dunkler bock called Ultra Reloaded (8.2%):

and followed it up with another in the same style called Anniversator 2019 (8%) from Munich Brew Mafia:

On Sunday evening, I tried a tripel from Victorian brewery King River Brewing. It was called Waiting For Godot, and I surprised the barkeep by pronouncing Godot correctly. :LOL: I've never seen the play, but friends of mine at school studied it years ago, and somehow that knowledge stuck in my brain. The beer was served on tap, so I didn't take a photo; there's a review of it here, though.

We did plenty of bar-hopping on day 3 in between the regulation sight-seeing. Here are some of the highlights.

A lunchtime return to the Schneider Brauhaus for Tap 6 Meine Aventinus (8.2%) followed by an Eisbock (12%) which both earned full marks:

Next stop the Augustiner Keller where we both had a König Ludwig Weißbier Dunkel (5%):

Final stop had us holed up in the hotel bar doing a little ‘people watching’ whilst downing a couple more Bavarian brews:

Das Helle is an amber ale (5.1%) from Tilmans Biers in Munich

We then tried a dunkle weiss from Hopf (5%) and Die Dunkle (5%) by Tilmans.
